Flood Reduction Projects

As had previously been communicated, the Village has been developing a Village-Wide Master Stormwater Management Plan (MSWMP) to address property and structure flooding within the community.  The draft MSWMP has been developed to identify all potential flooding locations in the Village.  The draft plan details proposed flood reduction projects for each location.  A dedicated webpage is available to provide additional detail on each proposed flood reduction project.  The Village is currently in the process of evaluating a stormwater utility user fee to fund the proposed flood reduction projects and complete the necessary maintenance of the Village's stormwater management system.  The Village Board will consider the final plan at an upcoming Village Board meeting.  To learn more visit www.libertyville.com/floodreductionprojects.

AmeriCorps Week

It is AmeriCorps week and the Village is fortunate to be part of the AmeriCorps partnership.  Jordan Francisco serves as an AmeriCorps volunteer with the Village through a partnership with the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and the Village of Grayslake.  Over the last few months, he has been working on various sustainability projects for the Village that range from commercial recycling, solar energy initiatives, and sustainability education.  The Village is grateful for Jordan's work and all the organizations that made this opportunity possible.  To learn more visit https://www.nationalservice.gov/programs/americorps/current-members/americorps-week.

Playground

Cook Park Playground Replacement

In October of 2018 the Village approved a Parks Master Plan to help guide park development decisions for the next fifteen years.  The first playground identified within the plan for replacement is within Cook Park.  The Village recently selected a design for the replacement of the playground.  The design includes pour-in-play rubber surface for ADA accessibility, two slides, two expression swings which allow an adult and child to swing together, several climbing features and ground level music play options.  The Village received a grant to help fund the project through the Illinois Parks and Recreation Association's Promote Play and Recreation grant for 50% of the cost of the playground structure.  The playground is anticipated to be replaced in late spring/early summer.  The existing playground equipment will be donated to Kids Around the World, a nonprofit organization that repurposes used playground equipment in other countries.
