More than 200 people packed Prairie View Middle School’s gym on the evening of April 12 to take a closer look at three proposals for the former Tinley Park Mental Health Center site. The community meeting was the fifth installment curated by Farr Associates, a Chicago-based planning firm.

Doug Farr, president and founding principal of Farr Associates, introduced plans for a stream, lake or wetlands to be placed at the center of the 280-acre site. 

While all three blueprints reveal room for soccer fields, some stark details separate them.
