Economic Development

Economic Development

Interstate 94, the main vehicular artery that runs through Racine County posts a speed limit of 65 miles per hour. But there’s no slowing the growth potential of the county's communities.

The well-situated geographical location benefits companies that need to serve customers and be close to suppliers. Existing, advantageous resources are available for companies’ use. Whether a firm needs guidance on lean manufacturing, intellectual property or any number of topics, Racine County's economic development partners have the resources to help.

Here's brief overview of what you'll find here:

Capitalizing on the area’s natural amenities, the GrandView Business Park overlooks I-94 just south of Highway 20 in Yorkville.

The Village of Mount Pleasant is taking advantage of its highly visible interstate frontage between state highways 11 and 20 by embarking on a 20-year development of 8,000 acres. The initial mixed-use project includes a business park, a service-center park, and a town center development.

Mount Pleasant’s plan is progressive and promotes an improved quality of life. The village is adding sports fields, bike paths, 200 acres of parks and a new village hall.

The mixed-use development near the intersection of Highway V and Highway K in the Village of Caledonia uses the New Urbanism philosophy. Twelve Oaks is rooted in preserving the village’s rural characteristics yet branches into the future with new housing options. The Trillium Commercial Center will surround the Village Green and feature a grocery shop, restaurants and other key retail establishments. Residents will be within a 10-minute walk to the common areas of their neighborhood community.

The Village of Waterford is a beautiful touch of home just 20 minutes west of I-94. Filled with quaint shops, Waterford residents and guests enjoy family-friendly events throughout the year. The Fox River winds through the relaxing community, and there are numerous public access points for fishing and boating. New single-family homes or condos are as attractive as accessible waterfront properties. The thriving economic environment allows for new and existing business to grow. Space remains in the WesTerra Business Park.

The Village of Union Grove is a community on the move at the intersection of highways 45 and 11. It revitlized downtown business district welcomes new and long-time residents. Established companies are relocating to the area and bringing new jobs to a qualified workforce.

The Village of Sturtevant is home to the Renaissance Business Park, a mixed use development that includes industrial, retail and commercial businesses. 
Sturtevant is also the site of the county's Amtrak rail station, which provides convenient access to Chicago and Milwaukee.

The City of Racine is home to numerous impressive residential and commercial developments. From affordable to exceptional, there is a place for your business or family in the city.
