Shiloh IL Mayor Jim Vernier and Trustee Bob Weilmuenster welcome plans for a new Auffenberg Dealer Group Auto Mall to the corner of Frank Scott Parkway West and Fortune Boulevard in Shiloh, in Southern Illinois, near St. Louis MO.

Auffenberg Dealer Group will be relocating from O’Fallon to Shiloh with a $40 million project to develop a 36-acre lot on the corner of Frank Scott Parkway and Fortune Boulevard.

“It’s a great opportunity to grow the business moving forward over the next decade,” said Jamie Auffenberg Jr., president of Auffenberg Dealer Group. “This is not a few-year project. This is something that we think will work for us long past me and well into the next generation — and hopefully the one past that — so we look forward to growing our business at this location.”

The project will be reviewed by the Board of Trustees at the Committee at Large meeting at Shiloh Village Hall at 7 p.m. Monday.

No timetable was given for moving the current Auffenberg Auto Mall on U.S. Highway 50 in O’Fallon.

Auffenberg plans to invest in extensive site work, public streets and utility extensions, and a new traffic signal on Frank Scott Parkway, among other aspects of the project.

John Marquart, the village administrator, said no TIF dollars will be used for the project, calling it a “complete game-changer for the village.”

The project will, however, receive some of the new sales tax revenue generated at the site.
