It will be the second Costco in Naperville joining the one along Route 59.
‘Memorial Field’ Name Propose for Knoch Park Field 5
Naming rights were the talk of last night’s Park District Board meeting. Naperville resident Ray Kinney approached the board asking for Knoch Park Field 5 to be renamed to Memorial Field, in honor of Justin Wegner, Connor Hunt, and other young athletes who died too early. Kinney also plans to privately fundraise for a new scoreboard for the field, which would be named the Justin Wegner Memorial Scoreboard. The board also plans to make 95th Street Community Plaza the official name of the development in south Naperville. All three of those names will come back to the board after 60 days for a final vote.
