Romeoville signs off on center naming rights deal

Romeoville signs off on center naming rights deal

Brock A. Stein | 1/22/2015, 12:29 p.m.
Edward Hospital will pay $500,000 to have its name on the Romeoville Athletic and Events Center for the next five ...

The Romeoville Village Board is expected to approve a five-year deal Wednesday night to give Edward Hospital the name rights to the village’s athletic and events center. VILLAGE OF ROMEOVILLE

Romeoville trustees approved a five-year deal with Edward Hospital Wednesday for the exclusive naming rights to the village’s Athletic and Events Center.

The contract, worth $500,000, will give the Naperville-based health care chain the naming rights for the facility through 2019. Under the terms of the deal, the village will receive annual payments of $100,000, with the first due Feb. 22.

Edward will also lease about 1,600 square feet of space inside the 55 Phelps Ave. facility for a rehab center and will have naming rights for one of basketball courts inside.

The village’s name will remain on signage inside the facility and in a less prominent spot on the front façade and other entrances of the building, Village Manager Steve Gulden said. Edward will pick up the tab for the new sign on the outside, while the village will pay for any change in signage inside.

Mayor John Noak said the naming rights would give the center a larger foothold in marketing the facility to a regional audience outside the village. The athletic nature of the facility, he said, lends itself to the naming rights partnership.

“This really does fit naturally with the center,” Noak said.

Gulden said the village looked at naming rights packages offered by other regional facilities in order to calculate the value of the five-year deal before advertising to potential suitors.

“There was some methodology behind it,” said Gulden, who noted ATI Field at Joliet Memorial Stadium as one example.

Village officials have touted the center as a catalyst of renewed economic development along its Route 53 corridor. Noak said the naming rights and rehab facility inside the center would continue that goal of drawing new visitors to the village.

Trustee Dave Richards agreed.

“There’s going to be people coming to Romeoville for things other than tournaments,” said Richards.

In other business, the board heard updates on its police and fire pension funds. The village’s fire fund stands at 111 percent funded and its police pension fund at 67 percent. By state statute, all public pensions must be 90 percent funded by 2040.

New Mistwood clubhouse construction starts

This is how the rear of the new Mistwood Golf Club Clubhouse will look when completed, per an artist’s rendering of the project.

Construction has started on a huge Scottish village-style clubhouse that will be the “last piece of the puzzle” of owner Jim McWethy’s transformation of Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville

Demolition of the old clubhouse was completed last week, and now an ambitious building plan is under way that will end with the completion of a multimillion-dollar, 26,000-square-foot structure by June 2015, with the banquet facility ready for rental by August 2015, club general manager Dan Bradley said.

The building is essentially broken into two wings linked bt a below-ground connection, Bradley said. On the east side will be a Scottish-themed bar and grill and banquet facilities and on the west, the pro shop, locker rooms, cart storage and golf club offices, he said.

There will also be three outdoor patio areas, Bradley said.

The goal is to create a facility that will appeal to golfers and non-golfers alike, especially in regards to the restaurant, he said.

“This is part of the grand vision that (McWethy) had when he started seven years ago,” Bradley said. “This is the last piece of the puzzle.”

McWethy was an investor in the club when it was built at 1700 W. Renwick Road in 1998. In 2004, he became the sole owner.

Since then, McWethy completely redesigned the course, undertaking an extensive renovation that garnered national attention from golf experts, some of whom have praised it as one of the top courses in the country. The Illinois Women’s Open will be played there in 2015.

Among the key components of the renovation was the performance center, which includes heating hitting stations, teaching bays, a putting lab, full service bar with eight flat-screen televisions, a club repair room and a room that can be rented for special functions.

The clubhouse is being designed by Daniel Wohlfeil Design Ltd.
