FYI:

Partnership with CommunityLink

Your O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce has once again partnered with CommunityLink to bring a street detail City Map to O’Fallon. CommunityLink published the O’Fallon city map several years ago. A representative from CommunityLink may be contacting you in the near future to fill you in on the full details of the map program and the advertising opportunities it provides. This partnership will allow the Chamber to highlight our members, while providing the community with these detailed maps. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Chamber Office, 636-240-1818.
