What’s the state of the art riverfront strategy for Kane County communities?
You’ll have a chance to determine just that during an open house conducted by the Active River Task Force between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday July 7, 2015, at the Hickory Knolls Discovery Center, 3795 Campton Hills Road, St. Charles, IL.
The community is encouraged to meet with the consultants from the Hitchcock Design Group team as well as the Active River Task Force members, one-on-one, in an informal setting, to discuss the preliminary riverfront improvement strategy, review design concepts, and provide input before recommendations are finalized in August. The consultant team will make a brief presentation of their preliminary recommendations at 7 p.m. After the presentation, the consultant team and Task Force members will be available to discuss the project and receive public input.
As an update to the River Corridor Master Plan completed in 2002, the River Corridor Foundation of St. Charles formed the Active River Task Force to determine ways to capitalize on the Fox River as a natural and economic asset. When complete in August of this year, the consultant team will deliver a market-supported strategy, policy recommendations, and a framework for public and private investment over the next five years and beyond.
