LOMBARD, Illinois — The Village of Lombard’s Community Development Department recently launched an online informational series about the process of opening a retail store in Lombard and the Village’s role in business attraction and retention.
The series, titled From Ground Breaking to Grand Opening: Retail in Lombard, features separate informational pages discussing site location factors, zoning and costs, Village involvement, and business retention. “Recently, with so many new businesses opening here in Lombard, people are curious about what’s going on behind the scenes,” said Lombard’s Assistant Director of Community Development Jennifer Ganser. “From the sidewalk, it can be hard to tell what’s going on when a business is under construction. We’re happy to be able to provide this useful information to anyone interested in learning more about new businesses in Lombard, and the Village’s role. Any time we can answer questions for our residents, we’re glad to do so.” The series supports the Village’s commitment to fostering positive relations in the development community, and maintaining transparent communications with residents. To view the full series, visit villageoflombard.org/retail. This 5 part series will be shared out via the Village’s weekly e-newsletter. To sign up visit villageoflombard.org/notifyme.
