The Downers Grove Economic Development Corporation has completed a process that has resulted in the adoption of a Five-Year Strategic Plan (2015-2019). The Strategic Plan includes a mission statement for the organization, as well as establishing objectives and goals. Each goal will include “critical success factors.” These are the steps that will be necessary to achieve each goal. The goals and critical success factors address all aspects of the DGEDC, including commercial and office development, the Ellsworth Business Park, downtown redevelopment, business retention, marketing, and the Downers Grove Visitors Bureau. The Strategic Plan also identifies organizational goals, such as: finance, investor relations, and office administration.
