DuPage County residents filed into the municipal center to offer their two cents for the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County.
The forest preserve is seeking public input to help its board develop a strategic plan for the future.
It’s 99-year history, it’s never once had such a plan, which comes at the suggestion of several commissioners, including Naperville representative Mary-Lou Wehrli.
“A strategic plan where we’re offering people to go through a formal step, with a facilitator, will help the forest preserve better understand what to do and how to do it and hopefully get more people into the preserves,” said wehrli.
“I think they’re doing a pretty good job,” said Naperville resident Rich Cullen. “My one concern is that I do a lot of biking and I get annoyed when they close sections of the trail.”
This forum is the first of six, one in each district that make up the forest preserve.
Residents can also provide input through a 22-question survey available online through May 15th.
