Des Plaines: Open For Business

Big night at Council.  Chase Bank sought approval for signage for their new location at Oakton & Lee Streets.  New construction, jobs, and a well manicured lot will be far superior to the vacant Arby's and the perennial Xmas tree lot.  Later in the evening came some even better news.  Our staff has worked for months negotiating a deal to bring Warehouse Direct into Des Plaines (from a neighboring community).  They're getting a tax incentive to move and we're anticipating over $650,000 in new tax revenue, a serious return on our investment of staff time.  Bottom line: our aggressive approach towards business recruitment is starting to pay off.
