At the latest Naperville Park Board meeting, the board discussed changes to the Riverwalk Eatery and the news of the suspension of a $2.5 million grant by the state for the new activity center.
The board was still sure that the project would move forward with plans, as they would never allow projects to move forward on state funding alone.
This grant was supposed to go toward the new activity center, set to break ground in April.
“So while we are disappointed that the $2.5 million is being held we are confident that we can fill that gap,” said Ray McGury, Executive Director of the Naperville Park District.
This news also caused the board to change their plans on adding alcohol to the menu for the Riverwalk Eatery and making updates to the building.
“I am recommending as legal council to you an alternate motion, which is to reject all bids and table the eatery project for further board direction in the future,” said Derke Price, Attorney with the Naperville Park District.
The board unanimously voted to table the project that was set to go to City Council for final approval.
