Harley Clarke Update-Nov. 4th 7:30 Civic Center Rm 2404- Two Proposals on the Table

 Last week the city received a letter (attached) from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources stating that they are interested in leasing the Harley Clarke mansion to consolidate their coastal management offices and to run classes on lake ecology and the environment. At the Human Services Committee meeting on this Monday, November 4, the city manager will ask the committee for direction on how to proceed, whether to continue to negotiate a lease for the art center to stay or to negotiate a lease with the IDNR. NPS has taken no formal position on which way to go, but several of us will be in attendance at the meeting.

We encourage you to attend and state your personal opinion or watch on Ch 16 at 7:30.
