Economic Development Coordinator
Welcome to the Village of Bartlett Economic Development page. Located in northwest suburban Cook County, northwestern DuPage County, with a portion extending into eastern Kane County, and easily accessible to county, state and interstate highways, and with commuter and freight rail access, Bartlett is Never Far Away.
Founded in 1891, the Village of Bartlett is an established suburban community of over 41,000. The expansion of Bartlett’s residential, commercial and industrial base has resulted in increased commercial interest by major retailers and companies looking to expand or relocate. Bartlett is becoming increasingly attractive for commercial, office, distribution and light industrial opportunities.
Bartlett boasts three business parks – Brewster Creek Business Park, Bluff City Industrial Park and Blue Heron Business Park. Downtown Bartlett continues developing, with the addition of a new Metra commuter station in late 2007. Retail opportunities abound at existing shopping centers and upcoming developments along the Route 59 Corridor at key intersections including Lake Street, West Bartlett Road and at Army Trail Road.
Bartlett’s Economic Development staff’s purpose is to provide assistance for any company already in the Village or considering a location in the Village. Staff provides efficient, confidential help with site location, locating financial assistance, retaining business in Bartlett, providing information on demographics, industries and major employers, permitting procedures and business plan data and resources. Bartlett’s marketing program includes participation at local and national trade shows, networking with real estate and development professionals, responding in a timely fashion to all inquiries for businesses and developers wishing to locate in the Village, and promoting the Village through periodic press releases, advertisements and articles in trade publications. Bartlett demonstrates its ongoing commitment to its business neighbors through its business visitation program, whereby the Village’s Economic Development staff maintains contact with businesses throughout the Village.
Through our motto, “Progress With Pride,” Bartlett has and will continue to grow into a thriving center of commerce with many vibrant retail centers, a strong industrial base and extensive professional services. Come and visit – you’ll like what you see!
