Enterprise Zone

As of 2017, applicants are required to be filled out by both the owner and the contractor. All information must be filled out in order for applications to be processed. If your project does not require you to have a building permit, please notify Growth Dimensions when you are submitting your applications. Applications must be submitted with the application fee. No applications will be processed without payment and all required information filled. Applications may take 1 to 3 business days to complete, and will be processed in the order they are received. All applications must follow up with Growth Dimensions to complete project and give final projected costs.

Beginning July 1, 2013 the building materials exemption will be available only to those contractors or other entities with a certificate issued by the Illinois Department of Revenue. Construction contractors or other entities seeking exemption certificates must go through the Belvidere-Boone County Zone Administrator, Joana Murati.

*Download the applicable form below, fill it out in its entirety (partially completed forms cannot be processed) and e-mail to info@growthdimensions.org or mail/deliver to 401 Whitney Blvd., Belvidere, IL 61008.

*A Belvidere-Boone County Enterprise Zone Application and Administration Fee is now in effect. Approved Enterprise Zone projects requesting a sales tax exemption will be subject to a fee of ½ % of the total cost of construction materials included on the sales tax exemption application form. The maximum fee allowed by Public Act 97-905 is $50,000 per project. The fee will be due upon the issuance of the sales tax exemption certificate by the Zone Administrator, and a summary of construction materials costs must be provided to the Zone Administrator at the same time.
Payment must accompany the application when submitted.
