Millennium Park-like development in the works for Schaumburg, Illinois

It is being called Millennium Park, but for the suburbs.

A developer is looking to build a 12-acre park at the old Motorola site in Schaumburg.

Village trustees unanimously approved a proposal for construction during a board meeting Tuesday night.

Plans for the park were approved last year and include an outdoor performance spot, as well as a dog park and ice rink in the winter, among many other features.

The first phase of the park's construction, which includes installation of pedestrian paths, landscaping and other site amenities, could be finished as early as November, according to a village spokesperson.
