Thank you for your interest in learning more about a community second to none! Naperville is a great place to live, raise a family and grow a business because of so many outstanding people dedicated to seeing the city succeed.
Naperville is a strong community because we have a wonderful Chamber of Commerce with 5-Star Accreditation dedicated to making sure our businesses not only survive, but thrive. For the past 100 years, this organization has poured its collective efforts into helping our business community grow and become the backbone of the city. On behalf of the Naperville City Council, city staff, and all of our residents, I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the Chamber of Commerce on its 100th anniversary! The Chamber’s members are wonderful business people who care deeply about the success of Naperville, their neighbors and their customers.
We have so many great employers who provide tens of thousands of jobs in the community. However, these employers also care deeply about the quality of life for their employees and the City’s residents. These businesses support many of the initiatives, nonprofits and events that enhance and strengthen our quality of life.
The City Council and I have always shared a commitment to supporting economic development in Naperville. We will continue to work with our elected officials on all levels as well as all other stakeholders to help provide a business friendly climate in our community.
I invite you to explore this great city and fall in love with it, just as I have. Young or old, there is something for everyone to do, see and experience. It is an honor and privilege to be the Mayor of Naperville, and I hope to see you around town dining, shopping, enjoying one of our many events or even just out and about for a stroll. If you’re considering starting a business here, I invite you to reach out to representatives from the Chamber of Commerce or city. We are here to help!
If you have a comment, question or suggestion, feel free to stop by city hall, the mayor’s office, or the Chamber of Commerce. We are all committed to working together to make Naperville a great place to live, work, shop and visit. You are one of the most important people in this city, and we want you to be part of our family.
A. George Pradel
Mayor City of Naperville
