Mayor Mike Chamberlain

Welcome to the City of Belvidere, Illinois' "City of Murals".  Belvidere, the county seat of Boone County, is strategically located in Northern Illinois. Belvidere is easily accessible to I-90, I-39, and US Route 20, making it very attractive to businesses and residents that want to work or play in the area.  Illinois' largest and third largest cities, Chicago (60 minutes) and Rockford (10 minutes) are only short drives away.

Our growing community is experiencing the excitement of greeting new citizens, while also strengthening the relationships of long-time residents.  

I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will visit us often. If you are a new resident, or planning on moving to Belvidere, check out our "Residents" page for information on utilities, and other items you may find important.

Be sure to visit the Belvidere Area Chamber of Commerce, Belvidere Park District, and Growth Dimensions websites, to catch a glimpse of some of the excitement and opportunity the City of Belvidere has to offer.  

I know you will want to come back again soon!
