Otobots auto repair proudly serves the thriving community of Tinley Park, IL with industry certified technicians. In 2009, Tinley Park was selected by BusinessWeek as the best place to raise a family in America. Settlement of the area which now comprises Tinley Park began in the 1820s by emigrants from the Eastern United States. German settlers became predominant in area by the 1840s, and the village was originally established in 1853 as “Bremen”. Irish, English, Scottish, Canadian, and other American settlers were also common in the area.
After its centennial (1992), Tinley Park from the late 20th century to the present has been focused on renovation of its downtown historic district. The historic district is made up of the village’s original 1892 boundaries. In this district, landowners are encouraged to maintain the historic edifices or to create new, historically friendly facades for otherwise non-historic buildings built in the last 30 years.
Downtown renovation projects include the creation of a park near the Oak Park Avenue Metra train station, as well as the recent South Street Project, a multimillion-dollar project that will create more than 220 apartments and 40,000 square feet of commercial retail space.
The Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre (Tinley Park, Illinois) (formerly named “The World Music Theater”, “Tweeter Center Chicago”, and until 2015, “First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre”), an outdoor venue which seats 28,000, is located in Tinley Park.
Tinley Park was the site of the Tinley Park Lights, an anomalous multiple mass UFO sighting event in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
In the late 19th century, railroads expanded rapidly, and the village happened to be located on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad line. The influence of the railroad on Bremen was so great that, in 1890, its name was changed to Tinley Park in honor of the village’s first railroad station agent, Samuel Tinley, Sr. Even the village’s official incorporation took place at the train depot on June 27, 1892.
Notable people from Tinley Park include Tevin Coleman (NFL), John Ericks (MLB), Gina Glocksen (American Idol), and Christine Magnuson (two-time silver medalist).
