Dear Southeast Park District Councils,


As Section 36 is working through its concept plans, the CAC (Community Advisory Committee) and DOWL are currently taking comments on the preliminary proposals.  Comments from your councils or individuals can be posted at the website http://www.muni.org/parks/Section36MPHome.cfm   

I hope you will all take the time to make some comments on the future of this regional parkland.  Here is a short excerpt from an earlier email from the project manager: ~ Shawna Popovici District Manager


All of these concepts are of relatively low development and are the result of our earlier CAC meeting discussions.

Please take until September 1, 2009 to review. We hope that you will solicit feedback and comments from interest groups and the public. The concepts will be posted shortly on the project website in order to get as much input as possible. http://www.muni.org/parks/Section36MPHome.cfm  


After receiving comments, I will refine the three concepts for the fall and public meetings.
