Board Reviews Plan to Expedite Stormwater Project in Golden Meadows Park

The Elmhurst Park District Board of Park Commissioners reviewed the proposed Golden Meadows Park stormwater IGA prepared by the City of Elmhurst on April 13, 2016 after discussions and review of the agreement took place last week with the Park District attorney and with the Park Board’s stormwater subcommittee.  In an effort to expedite the process and enable the City to help residents in the Pine Street neighborhood as quickly as possible, the subcommittee recommended a new sequence of events aimed at streamlining the agreement.  The proposed new sequencing was also shared with City staff that same day.  The Park Board reiterated that it is committed to moving forward with this IGA and offered that the City could begin work now on an environmental assessment of the site which could also help simplify the agreement and speed discussions along. 

According to Park Board President Carolyn Ubriaco, “We are committed to this solution in Golden Meadows Park and look forward to helping the families in the Geneva and Pine Street area.”
