Arlington Park Update

The Chicago Bears and Churchill Downs Incorporated recently executed a Purchase and Sale Agreement for the Arlington Park land parcel.  

The Village of Arlington Heights has been in communication with the Chicago Bears and Churchill Downs over the past summer to discuss the potential sale of the 326-acre Arlington Park parcel. The Village recognizes that many residents and stakeholders have questions about the potential redevelopment of this land and its impact. This will be a long discussion and there will be many opportunities for community stakeholders to engage in the process.  As with all development efforts, the Village will thoroughly analyze all proposals and make decisions based on what is in the best interests of the Arlington Heights community as a whole. 

While this process is in its initial stages, all parties fully respect and understand the challenging and complex nature of this effort and are committed to work through and fully explore the tremendous opportunities that this site presents.  Further information will be made available as the process unfolds.
