Message from the Village President

Greetings to all of our residents and businesses in Matteson. We are very busy on several fronts in the Village particularly as it relates to economic development. We are excited to see the opening of another strip mall area located on the corner of Lincoln Highway and Cicero Ave. we will be announcing some additional exciting economic development projects in the near future including some progress with Lincoln Mall.

We are also excited to be hosting our 30th Annual Matteson Family Days on June 27-28. We have an exciting program in store for our residents and visitors. Despite tough budget issues that we and most other towns are experiencing during this long lasting recession, the Board of Trustees and myself feel strongly that we must provide exciting opportunities for all of to come together as a community and preserve the family friendly atmosphere in Matteson.

During the month of June, I will resume my "MEET THE VILLAGE PRESIDENT" Saturday morning meetings where I make myself available to residents to meet with me briefly at a local establishment in Matteson. Look for these to start up the second week of June; Please refer to the website for the exact locations.

Lastly, this will be the last edition of Matteson Avenue that will be mailed to your home. In order for you to continue to receive the Matteson Avenue, you will need to provide us with your email address. The future editions will also be available on our website as well. We are moving toward providing more and more communication with our residents and businesses via the World Wide Web, so please submit your email address on the Village website at

In closing, I wish you and your family a happy and safe and peaceful summer and on behalf of the Ashmore Family, we wish you Godspeed until we meet again.
