DEPOT DRIVE: A PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP


click to enlarge
In 2006, the Village acquired 58 acres of land on Van Dyke Road for the purpose of constructing a transit center. A Pace Park-n-Ride will open this year. With the transit center underway, the Village explored other economic development opportunities for rest of the property.

The Village's key goals and objectives for the site, known as the Depot Drive development, are:
  • Add value to this parcel
  • Encourage economic development
  • Explore market options and interest
  • Facilitate the construction of a new Plainfield Emergency   Management Agency facility

 

Project Update - May 2018
The Village Board recently approved a development agreement with Northern Illinois Builders. This agreement encourages the development of the Depot Drive property while the Village partners with the developer to construct a facility for the Plainfield Emergency Management Agency.
