contentsCarol Stream IL Chamberads

Mayor's Welcome

The village continues to progress with a comprehensive approach to building our community and strengthening our local economy. The foundation of our great success rests on the many supportive partnerships forged with agencies like the Carol Stream Chamber of Commerce and the other business development groups it works with. As we continue to work together, I look forward to the future we will build.

Carol Stream offers a well-maintained roadway network, easy access to O’Hare International Airport, an expanding pedestrian and bike path network, the nation’s largest community college, a skilled and competitive workforce, as well as regional connections to the global economy that place Illinois as the Midwest’s leader in foreign exports.

The Carol Stream community is an attractive location for business investment with recent and ongoing industrial expansion and development projects by Antunes, Packaging Personified and Dermody Properties, which has begun construction of a speculative 381,000-square-foot “Logisticenter” on North Avenue. This building will be designed to accommodate a future e-commerce business. During the past 18 months, the village has approved plans for projects totaling over 1,000,000 square feet of new or expanded industrial building space.

The village is undergoing its own plans of transformation to improve services to businesses and customers with the renovation of the Bielawski Municipal Center. This $19 million facility improvement project, which will be paid entirely from reserves, will include a complete redesign of the existing 40,400-square-foot building and be supported by 14,300 square feet of greatly needed additional space. The project, which is expected to be completed in late 2018, will improve the resources with which the village conducts business with its residents, businesses and customer groups. During renovations, you may visit us at our temporary location 505 E. North Ave. in Carol Stream.

On behalf of the village board, appointed officials and our dedicated staff, I want to thank the Chamber and its membership for their ongoing investment in the Carol Stream community. We will continue to advance our comprehensive approach to community development so Carol Stream can strive to be an even greater place to live, work and raise a family.
