Two-thousand sixteen was a year unlike any other for the District, as it passed a $9.9 million referendum in the November 2016 election to:
- Renovate the Johnston Recreation Center to include committed space for active adult programming, improved early childhood space and enhanced security throughout,
- Improve the Springfield Park ballfield complex to help prevent widespread flooding of fields and paths,
- Restore shorelines, address non-native and invasive species and improve stormwater management of the 20-acre Springfield Park wetland area,
- And update and improve some recreation features of The Oasis Water Park.
In addition to the successful referendum documented in the 2016-17 Annual Report
, the Park District also began the renovation of Circle Park, thanks to a matching $224,000 Open Space Land and Acquisition Development grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
The Bloomingdale Park District fiscal year begins on June 1st ends on May 31st. The revenues and expenditures in the Annual Report reflect those dates. Due to printing deadlines and timing, the other content in this report covers September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2017.
