A Message From The Board President
 

In an effort to find alternative means to fund key improvements, we submitted an application for a state grant to help fund a modest first phase of the Sunrise Park and Beach Master Plan. Unfortunately, the Park District did not receive the grant, but we learned a lot through the process. We will continue to pursue additional grant opportunities for key assets like Sunrise Beach and the Aquatic Facility. We have begun a first phase of the Bluff Restoration Plan, and the results of that early work look terrific.

Our other key focus has been capital planning. We accepted the final report from the Twenty Year Capital Plan Task Force. Suffice it to say that over the next ten years our facilities will need significant reinvestment, for which we currently have minimal capital reserves. We did restructure some existing bonds this summer(special thanks to Lake Forest Bank and Trust for really stepping up for us). That will help a little, but expect to hear more on this topic in the coming months.

There is an exciting winter planned in the gym, the classrooms, the fitness center, and on the paddle courts. Take a look at what we’re up to, and come see us.

Best regards,

Kevin Considine
