The Village of Bethalto is committed to attracting new businesses while also fostering the success of our existing businesses. Please find information here to ensure that the processes involved in expanding or opening your business are completed in an efficient and timely manner.

The location you choose must be zoned for the type of business you wish to operate. The Village Zoning Code defines several zoning districts, each with varying requirements for allowable businesses. You should consult the Zoning Code or contact Zoning Administrator Randy Reddick for help determining what commercial, construction or signage permits may be needed for your business.
