Jo Daviess County releases New Resident Welcome Kit

HANOVER, IL – Northwest Illinois Economic Development (NWILED), Galena Area Chamber of Commerce, and Galena Country Tourism is pleased to announce the release of the Jo Daviess County New Resident’s Welcome Kit.

This new 12-page guide was designed to serve as an information resource for current residents and those moving into the region. It begins with the Love Living Here Welcome Letter followed by community profiles, and details on housing, workforce, education, and health and human services resources located throughout Jo Daviess County.  Thoughtfully designed and uniquely illustrated, the kit was created in partnership between the organizations.

Angela DeVere, Galena Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, comments, “The Jo Daviess County Relocation Guide is a time saving snapshot of our communities and villages, and a comprehensive way to find everything you need for an informed move.”

“We know economic development starts with a visit, and we’ve been fortunate to have visitors who return to build their business and make a home here.” says Rose Noble, Galena Country Tourism CEO. “Jo Daviess County is a welcoming community of natives and transplants, enjoying a quality of life only this area can offer, with a robust tourism market, amazing landscape, and small-town charm. This relocation kit compiles all the necessary information a visitor might consider when determining to call our destination home.”

NWILED wants to thank the numerous community members who assisted with the creation of this resource. To view and or download the welcome kit, please visit the NWILED website and look under the Living Here – Quality of Life tab at .
