Laraway Road Property Update

At this time, the parcel of land at Laraway Road & RT 45 that is owned by the Park District, has not been sold. As required by the Park District Code, it is necessary for the Park District to pass a referendum to allow for the sale of land over 3 acres. The referendum passed allowed for the sale of the parcel within 12 months from the date of the first sale. The window to sell the land expires on September 27, 2019. At this time, the Park District does not have immediate plans to go to referendum again to ask voters to allow the District to relist the land.  The Park District will be updating the District’s comprehensive master plan. The process will include a community engagement piece that will survey the residents and gather their input related to recreational needs.
