The purpose of the Economic Development Committee is to create an environment to attract and retain quality commercial and industrial business to the Village in order to encourage economic development, increase local sales and real estate revenues, create new employment opportunities, diversify the local economy, enhance the community's image, all of which will benefit village residents.  

Committee members serve as ambassadors to businesses and liaisons to the Village to support and provide feedback to the Village Board on the impact of economic development activities and regulations on businesses.


The Economic Development Committee works to create and maintain a "pro-business" environment in the village while maintaining requirements for good planning, quality construction, and aesthetically pleasing buildings.

The Committee's responsibilities include promoting the Village's business opportunities through promotional events and activities. The Committee facilitates networking opportunities at various Village functions with representatives of the business community. They coordinate and host annual networking activities among local businesses, including the Business of the Year Award, a Realtors and Business Reception, and a Business after Hours event.

Staff continually works with the Hanover Park Economic Development Committee regarding development updates and potential business retention, expansion, and attraction proposals.

To retain existing businesses, the committee supports the Chambers of Commerce events and activities designed to assist Village businesses.  The committee also works to maintain good communications with the business community, including providing feedback on the impact of proposed activities and regulations on local businesses.


The Hanover Park Economic Development Committee is always looking for suggestions from local businesses and participation in promotional events and activities! Please call the Department of Community Development at 630-823-5780 if you would like more information about the Committee.
