Nash Renovation – PARC Project
The Park District was awarded a 1.5 Million Dollar Park and Recreational Facility Grant (PARC Grant). The Park District was one of 22 recipients out of 265 grant seekers. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources administers the 50 Million Dollar grant program. The District received this grant because of several strong application points, including building renovation needs, safety and efficiency needs as well as local employment needs. The impact to local tax payers is minimized due to the fact that the IDNR PARC grant will cover 75% of the total cost of the 2013 Nash Renovation.
