Romeoville takes great pride in their park offerings and strives to maintain them at a high quality. This week’s board meeting saw improvements coming to many of these sites.
- ACT Services will review parks to ensure they meet Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines. They will identify any barriers that limit accessibility and provide guidance on how to correct these issues.
- The Plainfield Park District has agreed to share the cost of new equipment installation at Budler Park. The agreement will allow residents living in the District to use Budler Park and allow the District to use the park for local programing.
- A vendor has been selected to do the resurfacing of the Volunteer Park parking lot.
- Various park sites have been approved for fencing repair, including ball fields at Village Park, Volunteer Park, and Boucher Prairie Park, as well as the Boucher Prairie Hockey Rink.
“Parks can be the lifeblood of a community, especially in the summer time,” offered Mayor John Noak. “We want to continue the upkeep on these facilities so they can be enjoyed to their fullest.”
