GENERAL PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Governor Pritzer and the Illinois Department of Public Health have announced that effective immediately, our Region (8) can move to Tier 2, as our area has met the required metrics. Beginning in February, the Park District will resume in-person fitness classes with limited capacity. Registration is required and masks must be worn at all times. We will continue to monitor all state guidelines and provide any additional updates as they become available.
Due to the installation of the new solar panel field, the access road to the dog parks will be closed until further notice. Dog park visitors may park at ZONE250 or the West end of the ARC Center parking log. Please be alert when walking through the area as construction is underway.
Thank you for your understanding.
Park District Leading in Technology Practices
The Solar Energy Project began in 2018 with a focus on sustainability. West Chicago Park District partnered with Trane Technologies. Trane Technologies works with building owners and operators to create exceptional energy efficient buildings – and maximum return on investment.
The District is becoming a leader in Green Energy and minimizing its carbon footprint The project utilizes idle land and will in turn reduce the cost of utilities. Solar panels are currently being installed on the West side of ZONE250 inside Reed-Keppler Park. The 862 kW Grid-Interactive Photovoltiak system will produce 1,150,000 kWh annually helping to offset costs of 84% of energy used by the ARC Center and Zone 250 per year and will save the District approximately one million dollars over the 20 year commitment with Trane Technologies.
The project is expected to be completed by….summer 2021
