Naperville Parks District: Naperville Park District Board To Vote On A Resolution Concernin …
July 28, 2021
At their July 22nd meeting, the Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners discussed the need for the attached resolution following public comments from former State Representative Grant Wehrli, who encouraged the board to take action to encourage continued public access to the DuPage River. Recently, a group of Plainfield residents complained to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) about trash and trespassing on private properties beside the river. Following the filing of the complaint, the status of the DuPage River as a public or private waterway has been questioned. A group of state officials sent a letter to IDNR expressing their support for further public access to the DuPage River.
“The attached resolution sets out the position of the Naperville Park District,” said Executive Director Ray McGury. “The board will vote on the adoption of the resolution at the board meeting on August 12th.”
