Proposed Revovation of the Recreation Center

Given the growing demand for recreation programming, coupled with feedback from community opinion research a proposal has been developed to remodel, repurpose and expand the city’s recreation center on 127th Street. 

(Click Here For More Information)


Recreation center expansion proposal downsized from $16.6 million to $6.3 million. The new proposal to improve and expand the recreation center being considered by Palos Heights City Council is 62 percent less than the original request that voters turned down in 2004. The project was downsized by $10 million by reducing the scope of the project and repurposing existing space. The $6.3 million cost estimate includes architectural, development, construction, contingency, land and financing costs.

Project includes new gymnasium, three lane walk/jog track, multipurpose/banquet room, wellness center with exercise equipment, locker rooms, additional parking and expanded programs for the entire community.

Tax impact less than one-third the size of the original proposal. The estimated tax impact of the $6.3 million bond measure is $2.52 per month per $100,000 of a home’s actual market value, or about $30.20 per year. This is less than one third of the estimated tax impact of the original proposal presented to voters in 2004.

Nothing set in stone until additional community feedback is received. We value your input. No formal action will be taken to seek voter-approval of the proposed $6.3 million bondmeasure for the recreation center improvements until later this summer, providing time for additional public input. Your participation in future community outreach meetings and a community opinion survey which will be mailed to residents later this spring, would be greatly appreciated.
