In a referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot, the Bolingbrook Park District will ask for $14 million in bonds over a 20-year period to make community improvements. Three projects will be completed if the money is granted, according to a news release. The projects were determined as residents’ top priorities through community opinion research the district conducted.
The first project would be a Capital Asset Replacement Program that would replace 21 playgrounds throughout the village, as well as update and pave various facilities.
The Lily Cache Greenway pathway connection would be the second project, connecting Veterans Parkway trails and trails on the east and west sides of Weber Road.
The Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Complex would also get an update to its entrance and hallway and two new meeting room spaces.
Additionally, the fitness and aquatics locker rooms at Pelican Harbor Indoor Aquatic Park would be renovated. The outdoor portion of the park would receive a new bridge, pavilion and shade structures to its lazy river.
According to the release, there will be an upcoming elimination of a previous park district bond and interest, rolling off at the same time this bond would begin if passed.
