Within a few weeks an architectural firm will be selected to help create the master plan for Nelson Park. In talks that I’ve had with Bill Clevenger, executive director of the Decatur Park District, and Jack Kenny, a park board board commissioner, the public will have a chance to be part of the process. The time is now to get your ideas sent to Mr. Clevenger directly or at an upcoming town hall meeting. The meetings don’t have specific dates yet but I’ll post them here when I catch word of them.

I also want to thank the park district for sending a representative to our neighborhood group meeting last month. She spoke about the proposed bike trail that will go near the Home Park and Ravina Park neighborhoods. Hopefully funding will come through for the project.
