On Wednesday, December 7, 2022, Growth Dimensions Economic Development honored their 2022 Investors, Board of Directors, committee members and volunteers, with a holiday breakfast.

“We appreciated spending the morning with great people who are so invested in economic development for Belvidere and Boone County,” stated Pamela Lopez-Fettes, Executive Director for Growth Dimensions.

Belvidere and Boone County experienced substantial capital investments from new and current businesses in 2022, with more on the horizon over the next year. Supporters of economic development play a crucial role in bringing new businesses to the area and they make possible for existing businesses to expand.

Along with recognizing their long-time supporters, Growth Dimensions was able to recognize three new Investors, in 2022: Comcast Business, Alderman Dan Snow and Cord Construction Company.
