Right now is an exciting time for the City of Zion. As a
community, we're experiencing a re-birth and revitalization.
As a lifelong resident of Zion, I've seen this change begin to take hold. Our local economy has been strengthened and
diversified by bringing in a variety of retail businesses,
industry and upscale housing developments to meet the growing
needs of our community.
We believe Zion is a great place to do business. As you
become more familiar with
our city, you'll learn that we
have all the essential elements: a skilled workforce; land
ready for development with access to air, rail and highway
routes; and a very
strong, almost unprecedented, economic
The Economic Development Department of Zion will do many
things to make your transition into our community as easy
as possible. One thing we will not do is waste your time.
I've made a personal commitment to making this process as
simple as possible. That's why, with the full support of
Mayor Lane Harrison and the City Council, we've created the
unique "Pre Development Conference" concept.
By scheduling a "Pre Development Conference," you'll meet
simultaneously with all city officials you'll need to interact
with to break ground on your project. This means you may
be able to get your business up and running months sooner
than you may have expected, and will cut costs in the process.
To schedule "Pre Development Conference" or obtain a packet
of information about
our city and the various sites and incentive we have available,
please contact the City of Zion Economic Development Office
at (847) 746-4056.
I look forward to working with you to forge a relationship between your enterprise and the City of Zion.
