Proposed transportation complex to replace soccer fields at 91st & College

Washington Township Schools is considering a plan to develop an Operations Service Center at the southwest corner of 91st Street and College Avenue. The land is currently the site of 10 soccer fields utilized by Dynamo FC.

The planned development would consolidate a number of district-wide functions into a single location. The complex would include facilities for parking, maintenance, and fueling of buses and other district vehicles, training facilities and offices for the district police department, offices for various other support functions, and storage warehouses for district property and equipment.

The project would be part of a $285 million capital referendum to be placed on the May 2020 ballot along with a $128 million operating referendum, if approved by the school board.  For more details, view the WTS presentation from the November 13 school board meeting.

The Washington Township School Board will hold a second hearing and vote on these referenda at the school board meeting on Wednesday, December 11, 2019, at 6 PM at the H. Dean Evans Community and Education Center located at 8550 Woodfield Crossing Blvd.  As the proposed development has the potential to significantly alter the character of the surrounding area, the Nora Alliance encourages all interested residents to attend and participate in the school board meeting. It is our understanding there will be an opportunity for public comment.
