What We Do

The Peterson Pulaski Business and Industrial Council (PPBIC) is a not-for-profit economic development organization that assists in the retention and development of companies in five designated industrial corridors on the Northwest Side of Chicago.  We serve as a liaison between the City and local industrial firms that may benefit from city services, programs and special projects.

We determine needs and provide information on resources that contribute to economic development and address the industrial corridor objectives — that they are safe, functional and accessible, marketable and competitive, attractive, and manageable.

We aid in the expansion of firms and seek new industrial businesses for our area, and we encourage connections between the businesses and the adjacent community.
