West Bend is a conservative community which breathes of metropolitan Milwaukee amenities, while nurturing the benefits of a standalone community. The community we live and work in is strategically located providing access to metropolitan Milwaukee in terms of transportation, workforce accessibility, and competitive utility and tax rates.
West Bend offers a 71 acre "Certified in Wisconsin" shovel ready industrial site and utilizes Wisconsin’s Tax Incremental Finance District legislation in 11 different areas, as a tool to creatively attract new investment and jobs. The city’s federally designated regional airport provides first class aviation services, while its nationally recognized park system offers amenities envied by other cities throughout the Upper Midwest.
Interstate, rail and Lake Michigan access are each less than 15 minutes from the city and its expanding technical college stands ready to provide a workforce to fit the needs of any business. The Port of Milwaukee and General Mitchell International Airport are located only minutes away from West Bend. The city is also proud of its systematic snow removal practices and is largely insulated from natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, flash flooding and earthquakes that can unexpectedly cause troubling disruption to commerce. West Bend is the county seat of Washington County.
