Finding a Location

There are numerous websites available to assist in your search for a building or site.

Start with the Greater Beloit Economic Development Corporation’s website at and click on the “Site Selection” tab. Click on “Available Properties” to see properties listed for sale or lease, or “Gateway Business Park” to see vacant land owned by the City and/or GBEDC. If you are interested in downtown properties, try the Downtown Beloit Association’s website at under the “Resources” tab. Contact the GBEDC Office for assistance at 608-364-6610.

Before you buy or lease property, inquire about the property’s zoning classification. The City has several zoning districts, and each district has a unique combination of permitted uses, conditional uses, and prohibited uses. Ideally, businesses will be able to find available space in a zoning district that lists the proposed business as a permitted (by-right) use. If the proposed business is a conditional use, a conditional use permit is necessary before the business may operate. Conditional use permit applications are considered by the Plan Commission. Contact the Planning Division at 608-364-6700 with questions about zoning issues.
