History
The village of Goodview is a just a kid, albeit a quickly growing one (like many of our children in the US). Built as a housing subdivision called Goodview by Clarence Witt, residents organized in 1946 and voted to incorporate as a village when there were 336 residents spread over 789 acres. Goodview has been primarily a residential community for most of its existence, with the biggest growth happening after World War II. The village created the fire department in 1953 (Leo Borkowski was the first chief) but didn’t hire its first full-time police officer until 1974.
