LAKE BLUFF PARK DISTRICT - PROGRAM GUIDE Spring & Summer 2015
From the Park Board President

                                         Dear fellow Lake Bluff Residents:
                                         This November, over 70 percent of you voted in favor of a referendum supporting much-
                                         needed repairs and improvements in our parks. I am incredibly thankful for your support
                                         and proud to live in a community that recognizes the vital role parks and recreation play. The
                                         referendum funds will allow us to provide you with the highest quality of services that Lake
                                         Bluff deserves.

                                         Once again, I want to thank the hundreds of residents who joined our citizen committees and
                                         task forces to help make this happen. In addition, the Board of Commissioners would like to
                                         thank the Friends of Lake Bluff Parks for coordinating fundraising efforts towards the Beach
                                         bathrooms and stairs. Thank you to all generous businesses and donors.

                                         Since November, we haven’t skipped a beat. The Park District retained FGM Architects for
                                         the Aquatic Facility and Beach House, Upland Design for the Beach Stairs and Landscape,
                                         ACG, Inc. for the Recreation Roof, and W.B. Olson as the Construction Manager. The Park
                                         District will apply for an OSLAD grant specifically for Artesian Park parking lot, tennis
                                         courts, paths and playground so construction will not take place until 2017.

                                         As we will work to develop an efficient, considerate plan outlining our next steps, we will be
                                         sure to update the Park District website so residents can learn more about the status of each
                                         project. As always, feel free to get in touch with me or any other member of your Board with
                                         questions.

                                         I look forward to what's to come in 2015!

                                         Best regards,

                                         Kevin Considine, Board President

                        for the Three Day Camp on Monday and Wednesday only. Kindergarten

                        tested on the first day of lessons and swim instructors will assign the swimmer                          Sessions
                        into the proper level. There are no make-ups.                                                                     and
