Mayor’s Welcome

Welcome to West Chicago, a city that overflows with caring people, thriving businesses, prosperous neighborhoods, visionary leadership and an unquenchable spirit of independence.


Its proximity to efficient transportation networks, with access to highway, rail and air transport, gives it a leading edge for business development. Situated in the heart of the western suburbs and offering excellent schools; housing stock with a range of attractive price points; and lifestyle amenities including the DuPage County Forest Preserve, the Illinois Prairie Path, and an award-winning aquatic center, West Chicago holds enormous appeal to the creative talent pool employers are scrambling to attract. All this and only 32 miles from downtown Chicago—West Chicago’s location has it all!

The DuPage National Technology Park (DNTP), one of the most sophisticated technology-based business parks in North America, has strategically chosen West Chicago for its location, just minutes from the Illinois Research and Development corridor.

Its presence has contributed to the global reputation of West Chicago and the surrounding region for leadership in the nation’s new knowledge economy. We are proud that it has recently been named as the future home of the Northern Illinois Proton Treatment and Research Center, LLC.


Proactive business policies and programs supplement West Chicago’s natural amenities to create a compelling rationale for doing business in our forward-thinking community. Simply put, West Chicago wants quality business here and has created innovative strategies to make it happen. Additionally, constant vigilance is paid to best retention practices that solidly confirm the decision to choose West Chicago.

I invite you to discover the many benefits of locating your family and/or business in West Chicago. Visit our website at www.westchicago.org in the Business/Economic Development section where you can download a complete Economic Development kit to help you in your decision. It includes a short testimonial video from several current businesses, which speaks volumes for the satisfaction level they feel for doing business in West Chicago.
