Robust Economy Vision:

Mattoon has a robust local economy due to its innovative business attraction and development plan which leverages infrastructure, offers progressive incentives, and develops industrial properties including infrastructure to attract businesses.


Please see our Strategies which we are implementing to make this happen.

We are striving to create a community of entrepreneurs who are passionate about developing their business. To do this we are developing Elevate CCIC, Inc. a Co-working space and Business Innovation/Incubation center.


We would like to Welcome Everyone to visit our community and see why we are so passionate about our town and region.


Our Economic Development page has a number of resources for future business owners who are thinking of moving to the area.


We also have ample opportunities for major business to get the trained workforce they require with programs such as Lake Land College Fast Track Program.
