Save The Date: Chicago Park District Regional Budget Hearings

Thanks Friends of the Park

The Chicago Park District has announced the dates for the regional budget hearings. It is important for your PAC/residents to testify at these budget hearings to request much needed programs, repairs, playgrounds and projects in your park!

As a result of last year's budget hearings, plans for new playgrounds and improvements have been included in the 2011-2015 Capital Improvement Plan.

When testifying at the budget hearings please keep your testimony to 2 minutes and provide the CPD with a letter of request and back up information.

July 18 Jackson Park, 6402 S. Stony Island 6:00pm
July 19 Gage Park, 2411 W. 55th 6:00pm
July 20 Valley Forge Park, 7001 W. 59th, 6:00pm
July 21 Avalon Park, 1215 E. 83rd, 6:00pm
July 22 Hayes Park, 2936 W. 85th, 6:00pm

If you look at the Capital Improvement Plan all the Parks in the 6th ward are not receiving their fair share of funding. We need to be there and demand our fair share.
