LIBERTYVILLE – The Planning Committee of the Lake County Forest Preserves is having a special meeting to gather additional public comment regarding a master plan for Oriole Grove Forest Preserve.
The meeting will take place virtually from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 26.
Because Lake County Forest Preserves is following state requirements for open meetings and social distancing, the meeting will be via audio and video conference.
The public is encouraged to participate in the meeting via audio and video conference. You also may attend in person at the first-floor committee room at the General Offices, 1899 W. Winchester Road, Libertyville, where the meeting will be shown live. In-person attendance will be limited to eight members of the public, including media, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Instructions on how to attend remotely are included with the meeting agenda at LCFPD.org/board. The agenda is located toward the bottom of the page under “Agendas and Minutes.” Click on the “Agenda” document on the right side under “Attachments” for the planning committee meeting. The agenda will be posted by 5 p.m. Oct. 22.
During the virtual meeting, staff will present two concept plans that explore a range of ideas and opportunities for public access improvements and natural resource restoration at Oriole Grove in Lake Bluff. These are the same plans presented last month at an in-person meeting. The public will have the opportunity to comment and provide feedback.
For those unable to attend the meeting, the concept plans can be viewed at LCFPD.org/projects under “Oriole Grove in Lake Bluff.” Online comment cards can be filled out on the webpage through Nov. 9.
