How to participate in the success of Berwyn

The key element of the Berwyn Development Corporation’s (BDC) mission is supporting the “economic growth and vitality of our proud City.”

Our unique structure makes the BDC a special place where small and large businesses, residents and representatives from the city can meet to exchange ideas, discuss common issues and work together to develop and expand the economic growth of Berwyn. Our members come from all business sectors, including financial, retail, service, corporate and healthcare, and are Berwyn residents.

Join with us, your friends and neighbors, and support the economic growth and vitality of our proud city.

Participating in BDC programs can create opportunities for economic growth. Connecting with valuable contacts and making new ones can help you promote your business and build lasting relationships. Putting your organization at the forefront of the community increases your favorability rating among customers and the community.

Through training programs, committee participation and web-based resources, you can gain the knowledge that adds to your success. As you grow, experience how “A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats” as your success creates more growth in Berwyn. Learn and explore new ways of presenting your message to customers throughout the Chicago area. Participation is key.

This is an excellent time to participate. The BDC has directed the redevelopment of the northeast corner of Harlem and Cermak, brought life back to Ogden Avenue, revitalized Cermak Plaza and created a new look for Roosevelt Road.

In addition, we have guided numerous development projects, large and small, throughout the city. We are the envy of cities and towns throughout Illinois for our economic development performance over the past several years. In addition, we have enhanced our Chamber Services Division to include new and exciting marketing opportunities for individual businesses and the city.

And with more economic growth and development on the horizon, isn’t it time to make the move, become a community leader and be a part of the energy that has kept Berwyn rising?

Contact the BDC today and participate in Berwyn’s success.
