Last year was an incredibly busy year in Des Plaines. In 2019, the City experienced significant downtown streetscape improvements and, even more exciting, the purchase and renovation of the Des Plaines Theatre. The community saw a surge of development activity - from the completion of Ellison Apartments to a city block mixed-use project to its west. At the same time, the City created a new TIF District that includes the busy Lee and Oakton streets corridor and a proposed new Metra station. In 2020, we’re excited to ride the momentum we’ve worked to build over the past eight years and look forward to what the new year may bring.
