If there was ever one America, it is right here in South Holland, Illinois. We are a unique community that has always strived to be that beacon of light on the hill by maintaining our traditional values of FAITH, FAMILY AND FUTURE. The strong foundation of our Dutch forefathers, who settled here for religious freedom and economic prosperity, continues to be built upon and expanded by business people and residents working together in harmony to make South Holland a model community in which to live and conduct business. It is in this spirit that we request the honor of hosting your business in the Village of South Holland.
Why South Holland? We offer a business friendly environmentwith great transportation access and the strong community values that I mentioned above. We have always proactively promoted commercial business because we understand it forms the groundwork for a successful community. Our proactive approach to business has helped spur our community business partners to invest and re-invest in South Holland. Several food, health care, commercial banking and various other commercial businesses have brought significant new development to the community. Manufacturing companies like Rupari Foods, Carl Buddig, and Ed Miniat have invested over $100 million in expansion in the Village over the past few years.
South Holland is easily accessible through Interstates 80, 94, 294, 57 and IL-394. As we are a community of churches, the quantity and quality of these faith-based institutions provides a very healthy environment for individuals and families to live, work and shop. Also, we have outstanding individuals on our Village Board who work in unity with our Administration. These are not individuals who are seeking political gain, but who are truly committed to the overall welfare of the residents of South Holland. This helps to insure a very expedient process for any approvals or decisions needed.
In summary, South Holland offers to you a healthy, vibrant business friendly environment with great transportation access and strong community values. We would be honored to host your business in our Village and are requesting that we be given the opportunity to do so.
