Village of Bellwood
The Village of Bellwood is a vibrant community located in the center of Cook County, IL. Only seven miles from O’Hare International Airport and thirteen miles from Chicago’s central business district (the Loop), Bellwood’s proximity to three major express ways and two major railroads has been one of its major strengths for decades. Today, location coupled with diverse population is making Bellwood more sought after than ever. With $100 million of new development underway, Bellwood’s best years are still ahead. Mayor Harvey, his administration, and the village staff are constantly thinking outside the box and creating unique opportunities to be a welcoming partner to the private sector. This approach has led to Fortune 500 companies remaining in the village and new ones deciding to call it home. Fiscal responsibility and “customer service” is a policy and mission statement that has resulted in ten consecutive balanced budgets without the need to raise taxes. Bellwood has received an a stable rating at S&P for four consecutive years. The financial achievements are imperative in creating a municipality that both homeowners and businesses want to call home.
