April 11, 2023 Objection to West Park Construction Permits Sent to Village of Wilmette
Dear Village Board and Staff,
We have conferred and determined to state our objection to issuance of Village construction permits for the two additional paddle courts and hut expansion in West Park, which we understand from Staff may be imminent. Construction fencing to the edge of the playground and close to the community gardens is already up, as seen in this picture taken this morning.
Ways you can help
We are a group of engaged friends and neighbors of West Park in Wilmette, Illinois. For over 60 years West Park has been the only Wilmette park with a playground located west of the Edens Expressway. We are dedicated to promoting a responsible, community-oriented operation of West Park that prioritizes safety and legal compliance, preserves natural grass and trees, and protects the remaining fully public features of a treasured park. The Park District must change its outlook that West Park is not a neighborhood park, and act with consideration and mindfulness of the surrounding residents.
