Statement from the Village of Arlington Heights: The Village of Arlington Heights was made aware earlier today that the Chicago Bears have submitted a bid for the purchase of the Arlington International Racecourse Property site as a potential home for a new stadium for the team. Tom Hayes, Mayor of Arlington Heights had the following to add. “We welcome the Chicago Bears interest in the Arlington Park site. It is a one of a kind location and we are glad that the Bears ownership sees its tremendous potential. The Village will be working with the listing broker to closely review proposals by all potential users in the coming months.  Whether the final purchaser is the Chicago Bears or someone else, our goal is to determine which concept will be most beneficial to Arlington Heights from a long-term economic and community development perspective.” 
The Village will be working with the property owner, broker, and all potential purchasers over the next several months to determine which uses would be best for the Arlington Heights community.
