Families are Moving to Illinois I-72 Corridor for Safe, Friendly Communities and Good Jobs
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
The I-72 Corridor is an excellent place for families to put down roots. Our communities have a hometown atmosphere that makes everyone feel welcome and accepted, even if they just recently moved here for one of our high-paying jobs. This type of community support makes it easier to raise a family, especially when parents know that their children are growing up in a safe community with good schools, caring neighbors and plenty of opportunities for sports and outdoor recreation. When it comes to growing up, kids couldn't find a better place than communities like Jacksonville, Winchester, Barry, Griggsville, South Jacksonville, and Pittsfield.
Young professionals enjoy living here as well
Many young professionals are choosing to move to the I-72 Corridor after graduating from college. Reasons for this range from the large number of high-paying jobs in the area to the ability to move up the ladder and advance their career faster than if they were working in a larger city with more competition for their skill set. In addition, many of our young professionals are finding that there are advantages to living and working in a community that is small enough to have their voices heard, their opinions respected and their ideas valued.
Entrepreneurs and telecommuters are also moving to the I-72 Corridor. Located in rural Illinois, our region is simply beautiful. It is peaceful, outdoor recreation is all around and we have excellent broadband connectivity. This makes it possible for telecommuters to work in a charming and beautiful community for a fraction of what it would cost them to live in a nearby metropolitan like Chicago. Additionally, entrepreneurs have discovered that they can afford to launch a business where the cost of living and owning a business is significantly less than in a major city.
All are welcome in the I-72 Corridor
Our region is growing because of the talents of the people and businesses who call the I-72 Corridor home. Everything is in place for businesses, entrepreneurs and families to succeed. Fantastic transportation, robust infrastructure, broadband access, good schools, affordable real estate, and a low cost of living with a high quality of life. We invite families, entrepreneurs, business owners and young professionals to come and discover our region and how living here is the first step in creating an incredible life.
