Economic Development in Morris, Illinois

The City of Morris is located in Northern Illinois in Grundy County, nestled right along I-80 for east interstate access. Situated just 60 minutes from downtown Chicago, making it perfect for those who don’t want to live in a big city but want the convenience of being close to one. It is also great for visitors who just need to get away from the congestion and noise of the city for a while. Morris city officials are working together with developers and businesses to continue to bring jobs into Morris and grow the cities economy.

Morris offers the best of both worlds. Morris’s downtown boasts a quaint old-fashioned feel, along with unique shopping experiences that rival the best any big city has to offer. Morris offers everything one needs in order to live a happy, productive, healthy life.
