Commercial bustle co-exists neatly with a sense of local industry as Swansea quickly grows into a metro-East center. It boasts one of the largest malls in the area, St. Clair Square. It also has a non-profit Farmers Market, which local vendors opened in 2009 and now hold during seasonal months every Thursday. Swansea welcomes interested entrepreneurs to establish and register their businesses, offering a financial assistance program for those who need help setting up shop in town. Swansea recently partnered with neighboring Fairview Heights to create the Metro-East Chamber of Commerce, which encourages business networking as well as charitable donations.
Residence and Busines
A true meshing of community belonging and industriousness exists in the residence and housing resources offered by Swansea Village on the one hand and its major economic sectors on the other. There are no less than five active Homeowners’ Associations and multiple Senior community housing establishments, which seek to establish the highest standards for comfortable, friendly, and neighborly living. Swansea’s top two major economic sectors are education and healthcare; there are seven college campuses and four major hospitals. Social development combines with employment opportunities, securing the Village as a great place to grow and thrive as a true social citizen.
