Opportunity, Transitions coming to Mokena station area

If you’re a regular user of Mokena’s downtown station, opportunity and transitions are just around the bend.

Forty-nine additional parking spaces in the unpaved lot located just south of the Rock Island tracks are being opened up in early May for commuter use.  These spaces, which will be available for lease at a rate of $120 per quarter, are being allocated via a random lottery system.

If you are interested in leasing one of these spaces, you can enter the lottery.  Go to the “Enter Lottery Here” link at the bottom of this article, follow the instructions, and submit your application.

Applications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, and all lottery entrants will be notified of their status by Friday, May 4.

Those selected through the random lottery will have the opportunity to begin utilizing their new space starting Monday, May 7, contingent upon their signing of a lease and submittal of their initial quarterly payment.  Consistent with conditions that apply to existing parking spaces already being leased by commuters in this area, use of the new space cannot be guaranteed beyond March 31, 2019.

Minor changes are additionally coming soon to the paved lot located parallel to Front Street, just north of the Rock Island tracks.  In this area, fifteen commuter parking spaces are being transitioned to business parking in support of downtown development, including the Tribes Beer Company’s new brewery and beer garden.  You can expect this transition to also occur Monday, May 7.
