Message from the Village President

Greetings to all of the residents and businesses in Matteson. It has been a great summer and now we have fall to look forward to as the leaves begin to change colors. With the official arrival of fall comes an exciting season of events throughout the Village.

We recently celebrated the 11th Annual Taste of Matteson & Unity Day Celebration. I would like to thank our staff, residents and visitors who attended the event, as well as all of our food vendors, sponsors and volunteers. Due to their participation and efforts, we were able to enjoy another memorable Taste of Matteson. We look forward to working together with our residents and local businesses to put on a successful event again next year. If you missed this year's Taste, I encourage you to come out with your loved ones and enjoy some of our other upcoming family oriented events. Mark your calendars for the Fall Family Fun Fest on October 22nd and Breakfast with Santa on December 10th.

Please also plan to attend the Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, October 13th at 7 pm at the Matteson Community Center. Town Hall Meetings assist us in bringing information directly to our residents, as well as present an opportunity to raise questions or concerns to myself, elected officials, and Village staff.

On the Economic Development front, welcome to all of the new businesses in town including Fuller's Car Wash, who recently held their ribbon cutting, and South Suburban Mitsubishi. Congratulations to Generations at Applewood on their recent groundbreaking as well. I am excited to witness the transformation they have planned. We will continue to work closely with our Economic Development Department to seek new businesses for our community. We have several Economic Development projects that are in the initial phases and we look forward to more exciting announcements in the near future.

Thank you for your continued support and please know that we are working persistently to ensure a bright future for the Village of Matteson. On behalf of the Ashmore family, I wish you Godspeed until we meet again.
