Metropolitan Water Reclamation District vote expected on easement request on November 1

The following news release has been issued by the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association today.

 

TAXPAYERS WOULD PAY $500,000 TO PAVE 10TH FAIRWAY AT EVANSTON’S CANAL SHORES GOLF COURSE SO CULLERTON-CONNECTED DEVELOPER COULD BUILD $1M+ HOMES

Cook County taxpayers would be on the hook for an estimated $500,000 if the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) approves a request by a politically-connected developer to pave over the 10th fairway of 100-year-old Canal Shores Golf Course in north suburban Evanston.

 

The MWRD board is scheduled to vote on the matter at a 10:30 a.m. meeting Thursday, Nov. 1 at 100 E. Erie St., Chicago.

Greetings, all –
 
The Board of Commissioners has just received word that Item #47 (File #18-1090) – the item concerning Cook County’s request for an easement on District-owned land along the North Shore Channel in Wilmette – is being deleted from the Board agenda and will not be the subject of action at tomorrow’s meeting.
 
The situation surrounding this item is fluid and will remain so for the foreseeable future, and the agenda item will continue to be visible on the meeting agenda on the MWRD website all through tomorrow’s Board meeting.    
 
As always, please feel free to call or e-mail my office with questions and comments.
 
Sincerely,
 
Debra Shore
