Downtown O'Fallon, Illinois
The City is making a major investment in Downtown O'Fallon as part of a larger economic development initiative called Destination O'Fallon. Based on the public feedback we received during the creation of the Downtown O'Fallon Area Action Plan, it was clear that the community has a strong desire for more festivals and community events downtown, and yet, the downtown lacks a proper place for these types of activities to take place. Currently, almost any event downtown requires the closure of major streets and the loss of a majority of the parking spaces. Therefore, the City is going to transform an underutilized lot at 1st & Vine into a beautiful plaza and parking area.
We asked for your feedback on our plans, and you responded! Approximately 70 people attended our public workshop and over 500 people took our online survey.
200 S. Lincoln Avenue-RFP for Remodel or New Construction
The City of O’Fallon, IL has issued an RFP for a property at 200 S. Lincoln in Downtown O’Fallon. The City is seeking someone to purchase and either remodel the existing building or tear it down for new commercial construction. The City estimates that the land can accommodate approximately 20,000 square feet of space on the first floor and still provide adequate parking. Interested applicants need to provide background information about their company as well as photographic examples of the type of buildings you might construct and a basic site plan. The proposal selected by City Council will have six months to exclusively market the property and secure enough tenants to finalize the deal and apply for planned use rezoning. If after six months’ time the selected developer cannot secure tenants or financing, the proposal can be withdrawn or the developer can request an extension. The deadline to apply is 5:00PM on Monday, February 27.
