PROPOSED RESOLUTION

 

RG RILEY & SONS INC.   CLASS 6B SUSTAINABLE EMERGENCY RELIEF (SER)

 

WHEREAS, the Cook County Bureau of Economic Development received and reviewed a Real Property Assessment Classification 6b Sustainable Emergency Relief (SER) application containing the following information:

 

Applicant: RG Riley & Sons Inc. 

 

Address:  17700 Duvan Drive, Tinley Park, Illinois

 

Length of time at current location: 24 years

 

Length of time property under same ownership: 24 years

 

Is there evidence supporting 10 years of the same ownership and/or occupancy (tenancy): Yes

Municipality or Unincorporated Township: Village of Tinley Park

Permanent Index Number(s): 27-36-204-029-0000

 

Municipal Resolution Number: Village of Tinley Park Resolution No. 2019-R- 046 

 

Evidence of Economic Hardship:  Yes

 

Number of blighting factors associated with the property: Dilapidation, Obsolescence & Deterioration  -  The property was built in 1976, and as such had many fixtures from the original construction which have since fallen into a state of disrepair. The most pressing issue is a dilapidated roof; the original roof is filled holes and almost completely rusted out. The roof currently requires constant yearly maintenance and will eventually need to be replaced.  Inadequate Utilities: The property is over 40 years old and has had major heating and cooling issues in the past few years.   Excessive Vacancies:   Tinley Park’s Mental Health TIF contains 119 active property index numbers (PINs) in the Redevelopment Project Area, 65 of which are improved, and 54 are vacant. There are approximately 80 primary structures on the improved parcels. Of these primary structures, about 78% are over 35 years of age. Almost half of the land in the center of the Redevelopment Project Area is comprised of the Tinley Park Mental Health Center (TPMHC) property formerly owned and operated by the State of Illinois. The facilities gradually ceased operations over a number of years, with the last closing in 2012, and since that time the nearly 280-acre property has been vacant.
