Encourage forest district to buy land at Ogden, Adams

The IBLP land north of Ogden Avenue and east of Adams Road presently being considered for development is an environmentally sensitive area that is part of the Salt Creek flood plain. The area should be preserved as open space, because any development in this area will increase the amount of impervious surfaces and will result in increased flooding in Salt Creek.

The citizens of Hinsdale need to contact Jeffrey Redick, District 2 Commissioner of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, to make him aware of their support for the forest preserve to acquire this land and preserve this area as open space. Citizens are encouraged to attend the forest preserve meetings where their public comments are welcome. Forest preserve commission meetings and planning session meetings are open to the public and take place at the District Headquarters at 3S580 Naperville Road in Wheaton. Commission meetings are at 8 a.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Planning sessions are at 8 a.m. of the second and fourth Tuesdays.

Jeffrey Redick and his fellow commissioners will need your input and support in their efforts to acquire this environmentally sensitive land for the preservation of open space.

If you care about the environment your participation in this effort is necessary. — David Fichter, Oak Brook
