New Public Works Facility

New Facility Photo (2)2 - Copy

The Village has reached an agreement to purchase a new facility to replace the existing Public Service Center, home of the Public Works Department at 51 Raupp Boulevard.  The Village identified the expansion of its public works operation as a high priority as part of its 2017 space needs study.  Since the current center was dedicated in 1976, the Village’s population has more than tripled. Staff and equipment have grown to meet the needs of the community.   

The new Public Works Facility will be located at 1650 Leider Lane, a former warehouse space that has been vacant for more than two years. Retrofitting this location will come at a significantly lower cost compared to a newly constructed building. The Village anticipates Public Works will be operating out of the new location within the next two years.

During acquisition, remodeling and relocation, Public Works will continue to operate from its 51 Raupp Boulevard headquarters.  The Village Board will consider options for reuse of the existing facility leading up to relocation and consistent with the recommendations of the 2018 Lake Cook Road Corridor Plan.
