The Adams Development Co. was founded by Homer and Juanita Adams in 1961. Its primary focus is real estate development and sales plus commercial property management and leasing in the Southwestern Illinois area. Adams Development’s land holdings range from wooded residential home sites and prime commercial building sites to 1,000-acre planned unit developments. It has lease properties in multiple locations including shopping centers located along Homer Adams Parkway in Alton.

As Co-Chairman of the Grafton Flood Relief Committee during the Great Flood of 1993, Scott worked with city, county, state and federal officials and agencies to raise more than $20 million in public and private funding to rebuild infrastructure in the city to prepare for the regrowth and expansion of residential, commercial and recreational facilities there.

Scott has received the Golden Leaf Award, Life Spike Award from the National Association of Home Builders, Outstanding Citizen Award, Homer M. Adams Memorial Citizenship Award, and Growth Association Small Business of the Month Award.

Scott’s father Homer Adams received the first Golden Leaf Award in 1977. Just as his parents worked for the betterment of the Riverbend Area, Adams has continued to do the same. He leased the Christmas Carousel Shop to the Godfrey Women’s Club in 2021 to help the organization raise funds to continue its scholarship funding for Lewis and Clark Community College.

His past and present business affiliations include Greater Gateway Association of Realtors, Illinois and National Association of Realtors, Home Builders Association of Greater Southwest Illinois, Illinois and National Association of Home Builders, Grafton Chamber of Commerce, River Bend Growth Association, Southwestern Illinois Leadership Council Board of Directors and Director of Business Development for Church Administration (Enjoy Church).
