As part of the feedback received in the Village Parks & Recreation survey, Village staff are excited to propose the Midway Park Improvement Project.
If approved by the Board, the Midway Park Improvement Project will begin in July 2023 and will be completed by October 2023. This project would include the following upgrades:
• Wiffleball field
• Permeable paver parking lot (51 spaces)
• Outdoor fitness equipment
• Restroom facility
• Multi-sport court
• Arborvitaes and native tree planting along with landscape beautification. (Estimated 50 Trees Installed)
This project is being funded by the Village's General Fund and Grants.
In an effort to receive extensive community feedback on the project, the Village hosted two project open houses at the Community Resource Center (CRC) on March 15, 2023 and May 11, 2023. At these open houses, there were several project options presented. Following extensive feedback and community input, Village staff is recommending concept A. Note, project approval will be on the May 22, 2023 Village Board of Trustees meeting agenda.
To view a collection of resources from the Open House events, see below:
