The Park District of La Grange Board has placed a hold on approving bids for renovating Gordon Park due to the objections of two members, one of whom cited the lack of recent community hearings on the plan, The Doings La Grange reports.
"I believe in fixing up the park, but let people know about it," read a quote from Lynn Lacey, who voted nay to the $2.2 million in improvements along with Robert Ashby. "Eight years ago, people were talking about these plans, and some have moved."
According to the paper, a $400,000 grant is in jeopardy if improvements to the park are not completed by the end of 2013; the Village Board has authorized up to $2.6 million in funds to renovate the park.
