National Economic Development week, May 8 – 13

The Village of Lombard celebrated Economic Development Week from May 8-13. Economic development is a process that influences growth and restructuring of an economy to enhance the economic well-being of a community. In the broadest sense, economic development encompasses policies and programs that focus on improving the business climate, business finance, marketing, neighborhood development, business retention and expansion, technology transfer, real estate development and others.

“We are excited to be a part of an Economic Development Week campaign in Lombard.  Through past and current engagement activities, our Community Development Department, working with our Economic and Community Development Committee (ECDC) has taken many steps to advance economic development activities.  These efforts include adoption of a Village-wide Economic Incentive Policy, developing grant programs to create interest in the downtown and partnering efforts throughout the Village to make development projects a reality,” noted Village Trustee Bill Johnston, who is also the Chair of the ECDC.
