Description
September 11, 2020Engineering design of the pond expansion is complete, but the project has not been able to proceed to construction due to concerns from School District 45. Staff is preparing a joint application with the County for FEMA funding along with developing alternate options for construction.
September 4, 2020Engineering design of the pond expansion is complete, but the project has not been able to proceed to construction due to concerns from School District 45. In addition to affecting the project timeline, those concerns have also resulted in significantly higher estimates for construction costs. In response, staff has been actively seeking out external funding sources and submitting funding applications.
June 26, 2020Engineering design of the pond expansion is complete, but the project has not been able to proceed to construction due to concerns from School District 45. In addition to affecting the project timeline, those concerns have also resulted in significantly higher estimates for construction costs. In response, staff has been actively seeking out external funding sources and submitting funding applications. Staff submitted another such grant application in late May to the Rebuild Illinois Fast Track Program that was announced by Governor Pritzker earlier that month. Staff is optimistic about the application’s chances and hopes to receive a decision on whether the project will receive funding in the next few weeks. Separately from the pond expansion efforts, design of the upstream stormwater improvements on Wisconsin and Addison is still in the planning stages. Staff is working with the prospective design engineer to establish the scope of those design efforts.
