Flu Cases On Rise:
Flu season is in full swing and this year it’s particularly bad. The CDC is reporting that current influenza-like-illness activity is similar to that seen during the peak of the 2014-2015 season, which was one of the most severe in recent years. Edward Hospital reports a higher number of patients than usual is requiring hospital admission for their symptoms: over the last two weeks, 80 people were admitted with confirmed cases. Medical professionals encourage the public to get vaccinated, and remind those who are sick to stay home and avoid other people.
Harmony Park Location:
A harmony park may end up at the top of Rotary Hill. Last October, the Rotary Club of Naperville proposed placing a harmony park somewhere along the Riverwalk. Now they have a location in mind – the very top of Rotary Hill. Before the musical attraction can go in, its design will need to be approved by the Riverwalk Commission, the Naperville Park District and finally, City Council.
Fort Hill Activity Center Honored:
The Fort Hill Activity Center is getting high praise. It was selected as the Public Works Project of the Year in the category “Structures – $5 Million to $25 Million” by the Fox Valley Branch of the American Public Works Association. It is also being recognized as the Overall Winner of the Outstanding Facility and Parks Award by the Illinois Park and Recreation Association. The indoor recreation facility opened in 2016.
