GLENVIEW PARK DISTRICT REFERENDUM APPROVED On Tuesday, March 20, Glenview Park District voters approved a $17 million bond measure that will fund improvements to Glenview’s historic landmark The Grove, the renovation of the 44-year-old Glenview Ice Center, and purchase of open space for park purposes. The park district would like to thank the thousands of district residents who participated in our community opinion survey and outreach meetings, especially the Citizen Task Force members who volunteered their time over several months to define a proposal that taxpayers would support. “We are grateful to our taxpayers for their support of this important funding measure. The end result will be recreation facilities that are safer and more secure, energy efficient, more accessible for persons with disabilities, and positioned to better meet the needs of our district residents for generations to come,” said Glenview Park District Executive Director, Mike McCarty. As the park district moves forward with construction, all spending from the voter-approved bond issue will be publicly disclosed on the district’s website. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ IMPROVEMENTS TO THE GROVE Safety & Security Upgrades: • Addition of right turn lane at Milwaukee Ave. entrance • Widening the entrance and driveway • New security gate and lighting • Resurfacing parking lot Renovation of the Interpretive Center: • Replace outdated HVA
