Scott Air Force Base is located just a few minutes east of Belleville in Southwestern Illinois. The Shiloh Gate, Scott's primary vehicle entrance point, is only 1.5 miles southeast of Interstate 64 (Exit 19A) at Rt 158.

Belleville is proud and honored to have Scott AFB as our neighbor. The positive influence it has on all of the surrounding communities is reflected in our region’s excellent educational institutions, our churches, our health care facilities, public safety systems and transportation networks, our businesses, and our parks and neighborhoods where individuals and families from Scott AFB live, work, play and shop.

The Belle-Scott Committee

Belleville has a long history of supporting Scott Air Force Base. Evidence of this support is the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce Belle-Scott Committee which was established in 1949. It is the oldest continuing military/civilian partnership in the nation. The committee meets monthly alternating between SAFB and Belleville locations.

The highlight of the committee’s partnership is the Annual Enlisted Dinner which brings 150 local service men and women from SAFB together with Belleville residents and business owners to recognize and celebrate the sacrifice and contributions the Enlisted personnel make to the residents of Belleville and our country.
