Kendall County will join other Chicago area counties in a partnership designed to bring economic development to the region.  The county is pursuing the Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership, which regional officials are hoping will be recognized by the federal Economic Development Administration.  If that administration awards the grant to the partnership, the seven collar counties outside Chicago will be designated a “Manufacturing Community.”
