In Fall of 2015, the Village initiated a planning process for future improvements at the park. A public workshop was held on September 16, 2015 at The Prairie School where residents participated in a questionnaire, visual preference survey and discussion session. In October, the Village asked residents for feedback on three preliminary concept plans for the park. On November 30, the Parks & Facilities Committee met to review public comments and to develop one refined concept plan.
On February 11, 2016, the Village Board was presented with a final draft concept plan for the park along with estimated project costs. The Board approved the concept plan, and on March 10, a phasing plan with strategies for lowering project costs was approved. To view the full Village Green Master Plan, click here!
