As part of our commitment to keeping you informed about the Glencoe Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Plan, we’re pleased to share the latest developments in the project process.
Glencoe Beach Assessment:
The Glencoe Beach assessment is currently in progress, and it plays a pivotal role in shaping the overall Comprehensive Plan. Our team is identifying issues and opportunities related to beach usage, programming, accessibility, as well as social and environmental impacts. Recognizing the beach as a major asset, we are dedicated to ensuring it continues to meet the evolving needs of our community.
Parks & Facilities Assessment:
Simultaneously, the Parks & Facilities assessment is also underway. This process involves a comprehensive evaluation of existing conditions and patterns of use across our parks and facilities. This thorough examination will guide us in making informed decisions to enhance and optimize our parks and recreational spaces.
Your input is invaluable to us, and we appreciate the responses we’ve received so far. The community survey was mailed to Glencoe Park District residents the week of November 27, and we encourage everyone to participate. The survey will remain open for responses until January 15th. Your feedback is crucial in shaping the future of our parks, recreation services, and recreation facilities.
Upcoming Community Engagement:
We understand the importance of keeping the community involved in the planning process. To provide you with an opportunity to gather, provide input, and receive updates on the project, we are planning a community engagement event in late winter/early spring 2024. Stay tuned for details regarding dates and location. Your participation in these events is vital to ensuring that the Comprehensive Plan aligns with the aspirations and needs of the Glencoe community.
We thank you for your ongoing support and engagement in this important endeavor. Together, we are building a future where our parks, recreation services, and recreational spaces contribute to the well-being and enjoyment of all residents.
