Waiola Park Public Community Input Meeting July 20, 2023

Thursday, July 20 2023

The Park District of La Grange will host a Public Community Input Meeting Thursday, July 20th at 5:30pm at Waiola Park, 500 S. Waiola Ave., La Grange to see the second round of design concepts for Waiola Park and provide additional input for the site.

The PDLG Comprehensive Master Plan was approved by the Board in November 2022, and the District is now moving forward with exploring the feasibility of completing projects indicated by our residents through the master planning phase.

The Park District intends to apply for an OSLAD grant this year for Waiola Park that will be announced the following year, if it is awarded.

Managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the Open Space Lands Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) grant program is a state-financed, matching grant program that provides funding assistance to local government agencies for acquisition and/or development of land for public outdoor recreation areas.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like to provide feedback, please email Jenny Bechtold directly at jennybechtold@pdlg.org.

Thank you,

Jenny Bechtold Executive Director
