Your Connection to Prime Commercial Corridors

The Village of Homer Glen is an upscale suburban Chicago gem with 3 prime commercial corridors, located in one of the country's fastest growing counties. A strategically inspired commercial development plan allows the Village to embrace growth along its high traffic corridors (Bell Road, 143rd Street and 159th Street), while elsewhere preserving the semi-rural character that makes Homer Glen such a desirable community. Please contact us today for assistance and to learn more about business and development opportunities in Homer Glen.
