We can't believe it's almost March, but there's plenty to be excited about as we race through the first quarter of 2018. The Saint Louis region, propelled in part by successes in Southwestern Illinois, continues to gain recognition as a hot industrial market that appears to still have room for growth. In this edition of Good Newslink, we share insight on why!
We also highlight $225 million in grant funds from IDOT to be distributed over the next four years
to continue to improve the mobility of freight through Southwestern Illinois. An additional $500 million is being made available in state loans to promote business growth in rural Illinois. This edition also includes news of a $1.5 million luxury apartment project planned for Belleville and details the completion of multi-million dollar municipal buildings in both Edwardsville and Belleville.
Finally, the Leadership Council's Salute to Southwestern Illinois Awards Celebration is still accepting reservations and sponsorships for the March 15 event. We can't wait to host you all as we celebrate major contributors in talent development from the past 35 years. If you'd like to join us in honoring these regional and industry leaders, give us a call at 618-692-9745.
Have a great week!
