Park board reverses vote, approves lakefront contracts
Despite the continuing objections of two commissioners, Wilmette’s park district board on Monday approved more than $980,000 in design contracts for lakefront master plan work. The two contracts, a $352,547 pact with Williams Architects for schematic plans and a $527,863 contract with SmithGroupJJR for civil engineering and landscaping designs, should allow the district to start master plan projects next fall, if voters approve a $14.05 million bond referendum this coming April.
