Town Center Mixed-use Project

The Town Center project area is adjacent to Richton Park’s Metra’s Electric line commuter rail station at the intersection of Governors Highway and Sauk Trail. The adopted plan calls for the increase of residential density and commercial intensity through substantial new real estate development.

The village controls all properties within the primary development area, while also controlling properties that are located in its secondary development areas. Tax Increment Financing Districts have been established to assist the project. Additionally, the village has been successful in obtaining funding sources for this redevelopment opportunity including a recently completed rail line viaduct beautification project, funding through the Illinois EPA to assist with a vital Brownfield remediation projects, and appropriations to prepare engineering for a new 600 vehicle mixed-use parking garage structure.
