Having a Vision, Moving Forward
Vivian Covington, Village of University Park
"The vision was to put University Park
on the map. In adding infrastructure with technology, We are happy to now have our new expressway off I-57 exit 337, widening our roads with bike paths and , adding better lighting.
These additions have attracted several new companies to our town . We celebrated ribbon cutting in the past two years with three companies. DOT foods, Holland Company and a newly built building 1.3 million square ft . named Georgia Pacific . Having the new exit off I-57 has attracted many companies because of the accessibility to the highway. Our Village is looking toward even more growth in the up-coming year."
