“We believe that business goes where it’s invited . . . and stays where it’s well treated." Oak Lawn has been extremely successful at attracting and retaining business within the village due to the proactive and forward-thinking actions of its elected officials. A solid infrastructure and a commitment to economic development are just some of the reasons why businesses continue to succeed in Oak Lawn. Each day, over 500 commuters ride THE METRA Commuter Train to Chicago. Equally important is the fact that over 100,000 cars pass through the community on a daily basis.

Committed to retaining its character, Oak Lawn is entering an exciting period of redevelopment as it looks toward growth for our community. This period allows Oak Lawn to embrace development while preserving the resources that have made it so attractive. It’s simply the place businesses want to be. So whether you are a manufacturer, retailer, or office-based business, the Village of Oak Lawn wants to help you grow a successful business. We hope you find the Village's web site as a resource to do just that.
