"There are several reasons why Boone County is among the best locations to work, live and do business. Boone County is a business friendly environment. By taking a customized approach, the Growth Dimensions and our partners are able to respond to the unique needs of each business. With direct access to rail, major interstates and within 60 minutes to two international airports, this region is conducive for business growth. It is due to this access and location that Boone County is able to attract a strong workforce from over a 70 mile radius. The region has strong relationships with the education system and Workforce Board to assist businesses with their training and recruitment needs. Growth Dimensions works closely with the K-12 system to develop a pipeline and to prepare youth with the future workforce needs of businesses. And, Boone County is an affordable location. The tax rates are lower than our neighbors in northern Illinois.
