Oglesby Mayor Looking To Attract Convention Center

Posted by wlpo on March 17, 2014

It doesn’t cost anything to dream and Oglesby Mayor Don Finley is still dreaming big.

Finley says he talked to potential investors of a convention center last week and hopes to talk to them again soon.  Oglesby City Clerk Becky Clinard was part of a group of Illinois Valley leaders that visited Tinley Park last month seeing how that suburb developed a convention center.

Finley says the plan includes a large hotel as part of a second phase of development.  If Oglesby were to be picked for the development, it would be along Interstate 39.
