Green Farm Barn Project
The Forest Preserve District’s board is exploring possible public uses for the Green Farm Barn at Greene Valley Forest Preserve in Naperville. The committee will recommend the best public use for the Greene Barn complex that aligns with the District’s mission and master plan goals and objectives. The committee will be tasked to identify partnerships, funding sources and potential revenues, and include analysis of costs for development, operations and maintenance.
