Over the years Dieterich has worked hand in hand in providing development assistance for interested parties.  If you are interested in residential, industrial, or commercial development Dieterich has a space for you.  Thanks to the Village’s proactive vision, the community can offer assistance to developers in all of these areas.

Dieterich has historically been a financially stable community and our current board of directors takes great pride in their fiscal responsibility.  At the same time Dieterich understands that new residents and small businesses are the lifeblood of our growing community.  We are willing to make the necessary investments to ensure a continuing quality of life for our residents.

Thanks to our proactive approach to Tax Increment Financing, the Village of Dieterich has been able to increase residents, commercial businesses, and industrial business since the start of TIF I in 1997.  With the addition of TIF II in 2007 Dieterich has even greater aspirations for a growing community.
