PICTURE YOUR BUSINESS IN A VIBRANT, suburban community - A Village where the economic environment is stronger than ever, professional services abound, and the local government is committed to helping you grow. Through thoughtful planning and a visionary partnership with the Grafton Area Chamber of Commerce and Ozaukee Economic Development, the Village of Grafton has set a high priority on its economic development efforts.  To date, those efforts have paid major dividends with the development of multiple national retail corridors, a regional medical facility, while maintaining and retaining small businesses and restaurants in our vibrant downtown. 

When considering new locations, look no further than the Village of Grafton that offers close proximity to an international airport and direct access to interstate highways, enabling businesses to serve customers nationwide and attract employees from a wide labor pool. Grafton also offers a diverse array of stores, shops, and restaurants.  More specifically, the Village of Grafton has three primary retail sectors that can accommodate all sizes and types of commercial establishments - I-43 frontage to quaint downtown sites are available. Village staff is happy to assist with your search.
