Economic Development

We are Here to Help!

Whether you are an existing or new business in town or if you are considering moving your business to Burr Ridge; we are here to help.  Listed to the right on this page is contact information for Village staff.  Call or email if you have questions, concerns or comments.  We want to hear from you and we want to know how we can help your business.

Burr Ridge is home to over 500 businesses occupying more than 6 million square feet of floor area and employing 10,000 plus people.  Why so many businesses?  One reason is our great location next to the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), close to Midway and O’Hare Airports, and with easy access to all of the Chicagoland area and the Midwest region.  Another reason is the amenities.  There are five high quality hotels in Burr Ridge and a modern suburban downtown with shopping, dining, and entertainment.  And don’t forget the infrastructure.  Modern buildings supported by well-maintained streets and utilities.

But more than anything, Burr Ridge is people.  Smart, talented people who want your business to thrive.  Our Mayor, Board of Trustees, and Commissions include entrepreneurs, business owners, architects, engineers and more.  The Village government is staffed by accredited, experienced professionals.  We have also recently partnered with SCORE.  SCORE has been helping small businesses start, grow, and achieve for more than 50 years.  Most of their mentoring programs are free!  Here is a link to the SCORE web site:   Tell them Evan sent you!

If you have questions about any of our business parks, Village services, utilities, building locations, zoning regulations, or anything else, call or email and we will be glad to assist.
