Wilmette Park District kicks off sustainability planning process
WILMETTE PARK DISTRICT KICKS OFF SUSTAINABILITY PLANNING PROCESS
Sustainability Plan and related activities slated to begin early 2024
July 10, 2023 – The Wilmette Park District is thrilled to announce that the process has begun to create a Sustainability Plan that will guide the future of the Park District into a new chapter of green, sustainable practices. With a target completion date in early 2024 for the sustainability planning process, the resulting Plan will combine feedback and direction from both an internal steering committee and the Wilmette community.
The primary objective of the anticipated Plan is to strengthen existing sustainable practices within the Park District while providing a roadmap for achieving greater sustainability goals in the coming years. Through the adoption of environmentally friendly strategies, the Wilmette Park District aims to protect and enhance the natural resources that make our parks and community special.
“Creating a Sustainability Plan is such an exciting venture for the Wilmette Park District. I’m thrilled to embark on the planning process with strong support from the Park Board, fellow staff members, and the broader community,” said Lucy Mellen, Wilmette Park District Sustainability Coordinator.
To initiate the planning process, the Park District invites residents and park patrons to participate in a brief two-minute survey. The survey, accessible at https://lp.constantcontactpages.com/sv/2KlL6Wo, will enable the Park District to gauge community perspectives and ensure that their ideas are understood during the initial planning phase.
“If there’s one thing we’re certain of, it’s that our community deeply values our parks and natural spaces, and they have a strong investment in maintaining these resources for their children and future generations,” explains Executive Director Steve Wilson. “We are very excited to begin establishing a plan that will align with our community’s values and help the Wilmette Park District move forward into the future with sustainable practices.”
