Representatives of the new Romeoville Toyota received approval on the design of the car dealership located on Weber Road. The nearly 47,000 s.f. state-of-the-art building will include a showroom, sales area, service areas and office space.

Village officials worked with Toyota representatives on the potential impact of lighting and traffic on the nearby area. The approved lighting is significantly less compared to their existing location in Joliet and consistent with the standards recommended by the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America.

"We are very excited Thomas Toyota has chosen Romeoville for their new location. We look forward to breaking ground soon," said Mayor Noak.

This is the first new car dealership to locate within the Village of Romeoville. Construction is anticipated to begin this Fall.

Once completed, the dealership will move from its current location on Larkin Ave. in Joliet.
