Will County must balance growing economic development with quality of life, Walsh says in state of the county

Author: Editor

Will County continues to “prosper” and its future is “very bright,” said County Executive Larry Walsh in the opening of his annual state of the county address Thursday. 

But the county must also “actively prepare for our future and act responsibly as we face the challenges of growth,” he said.

Walsh recited a litany of building projects the county has tackled in the past year – the new $33 million Public Safety Complex that opened in January, the construction of the $210 million courthouse now underway in downtown Joliet, and the new health department facility, which will soon begin to replace a 100-year-old structure.
