The Illinois Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) has recognized the Crystal Lake Park shoreline rehabilitation project as the Project of the Year.
The park district shared this award with ERA Engineering as the design engineer and Stark Construction as the project contractor.
The award recognizes projects that are exemplary in their protection of the environment, use of good construction practices, and engagement with the community.
The APWA handed out the awards recently at its annual conference in Peoria. The Urbana Park District Board of Commissioners was briefed on the award at its May 10, meeting.
