What is the Crest Hill Advantage?
The Crest Hill Advantage is having the right community for your industrial, commercial or residential project. It is having a community that provides a great quality of life for its residents and a quality environment to do business.
The City of Crest Hill incorporated in 1960 has grown from a small farming community just outside of Joliet into a commercial destination. Located on the crossroads of Will County, still the fastest growing county in the state of Illinois, and strategically located on US Route 30, Route 53/66, the commercial corridor of Weber Road, and just a few minutes from Interstates 55 and 80. With our eye on the future, city leaders are aggressively attracting new commerce to provide an expanded commercial tax base and new opportunities for local employment.
