Share post:

Arlington Heights, IL – In the face of swirling reports about the future of a new domed Chicago Bears’ stadium in Chicago, the Village of Arlington Heights issued a statement Monday afternoon, emphasizing its ongoing commitment to the redevelopment of Arlington Park. 

Village officials have been actively participating in conversations with the Bears, highlighting that no final decisions have been made regarding the location, despite speculation.

According to Mayor Tom Hayes, the project has seen its fair share of “twists and turns,” yet the village’s resolve remains steady. They seek a development that would not only serve the Chicago Bears but also act as a boon for the broader community, capitalizing on the 326-acre property’s prime location and accessibility. The mayor asserts that the village and the Bears are aligned in their desire to create a multi-use development that honors the storied legacy of Arlington Park.

While hurdles reportedly remain—specifically the resolution of property tax issues with school districts—the village is confident that an agreement is within reach, thanks to the proximity of the parties’ positions. The Village continues to advocate for a plan that will meet community expectations and contribute to the region’s growth.

The full statement, alongside further details, can be found at the Village’s official website, reaffirming their transparent approach to public communication during this critical decision-making phase.
