Lombard is a solid middle class town, with escalating property values,a Metra rail line for commuting, close to the area interstates(83,355,290,90) and plenty of shopping options (Yorktown Mall).
The downtown area appears to experiencing some growth with resturants,shopping etc. but is on the small side compared to the downtown areas of Wheaton, Glen Ellyn and Elmhurst.

As far as scenery goes, well it's suburbia..... however, both the Great Western Trail and the Illinois Prarie Path (hiking/bike paths) run within the borders of Lombard.
The core downtown area is ringed nicely, by older homes and tree lined streets.

Not sure what you mean about "racial tension".
Like most of the Chicago suburbs there is a certain amount of diversity, but Lombard is predominately caucasion in it's make up.
I am not aware of any racial issues.

In comparison to local communities I'd rate Lombard over Addison, Glendale Heights and Villa Park, but place it behind Elmhurst,Glen Ellyn, Downers Grove and Wheaton in terms of overall desireabilty.
