Re-envisioning Stratford Square Mall

Storymap Screenshot 2

Many of us have a deep nostalgia for the Stratford Square Mall.  The mall was an economic engine for our community from its very beginning, but vacancies have continued to climb and it no longer represents an attractive or financially viable asset to the community. 

Visit the interactive Re-envisioning Stratford Square website to learn about more about the steps that the Village has been taking over the past several years to address these concerns.  The success of this property is important to the vitality of our community.

The Village is working with Teska Associates, Inc. to develop a Strategic Vision Plan for the Stratford Square Mall property.  As a portal to better understand the priorities and preferences for redevelopment, two Concept Plans with Companion Imagery were developed by Teska, both are available via the second link below.

Community Engagement

To better understand the community’s priorities for the mall site and to gather feedback on the Concept Plans, a survey was open July 8th – August 14th, 2022.  Findings from the survey (available below) and next steps were discussed at the Village Board’s October 10th, 2022 meeting.
