Development Projects

A variety of commercial, residential, infrastructure, and community projects continue to be built in DeKalb, in both infill and new growth areas. This page is updated with a listing of development projects currently under review and recently completed projects.

This information is meant to be a general representation of the larger projects and recent news within the City of DeKalb and, therefore, does not account for every project or new business in the area.

The Community Development Department is available to answer any development questions at (815) 748-2060. 

Are you looking for feedback on a proposed development project or assistance with the permitting process? The Development Team meets weekly to review projects. Visit the Department's website or email the City's Principal Planner Dan Olson to schedule an appointment or ask a question.
