Message from the Mayor

On behalf of our nearly 60,000 proud citizens, I am pleased to welcome you to the Village of Tinley Park. Boasting fine residential neighborhoods, a wide range of entertainment opportunities and a dynamic business community, Tinley Park expertly blends the best of all worlds.

Our excellent location at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Harlem Avenue, just a 35-minute drive or short train ride from downtown Chicago, has attracted continuing prime business and hospitality industry development. Along with the emergence of award-winning restaurants, a popular Convention Center and a large selection of high-profile hotels, Tinley Park is home to major shopping areas serving our growing community and the surrounding region. Our strong local economy—a diverse mix of retail, office, industry and entertainment businesses—has benefited both our residents and companies who have chosen to make Tinley Park their home.

In addition, village officials have worked with the business community to revitalize our historic downtown, developing carefully planned incentives to encourage new construction and façade improvements. The construction of an architecturally outstanding train station and an inviting town square has made this downtown area a popular venue for numerous community activities, attracting visitors from the entire area.

This progress has been made possible through the vision of our community leaders with the support of our dedicated residents. Our schools, recreational facilities, neighborhoods and business community are second to none.

Come join us as we continue to enhance Tinley Park’s reputation as an outstanding village in which to live, work and play. You will be glad that you did!

Jacob C. Vandenberg
Mayor, Village of Tinley Park
