Former Arlington Heights Mayor Arlene J. Mulder was honored with the naming of the community room at the new police station at 200 East Sigwalt Street. Mulder was honored during an open house at the new police station Saturday, March 16, 2019.
During the ceremony a veil covering the sign for the Arlene J. Mulder Community Room was dropped to applause from the audience. “There’s no better place to live, raise a family and contribute to the community,” Mulder said at the ceremony at the new Arlene J. Mulder Community Room, which is just to the right for the police department front desk and lobby of the police station.

The room has a capacity of 170 people, video displays, and a vaulted ceiling with wood finishes made with 30,000 linear feet of reclaimed ash — many from trees that had to be removed due to ash borer damage from parkways in the Village of Arlington Heights.
The community room will be used as a space for meetings for community organizations, and can also be used as an additional training room to the main training room located in the basement of the police station.
The new police station replaced the police station built more than 40 years ago in the same location. The building includes many sophisticated features for each department within the department.
Mulder was on the Arlington Heights Park District board and village board before serving as mayor for 20 years. She held public office for 34 years total, and was succeeded by Hayes.
