Public Meeting Will Unveil Conceptual Plans for Future Rehabilitation of Crystal Lake and Provide Forum for Comment and Questions
The Urbana Park District will host a drop-in public meeting between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 to unveil conceptual designs and plans for Crystal Lake. The “open house” style meeting will take place at the Planning and Operations Building, 1011 E. Kerr Street.
The district’s planning consultants, including local firm Berns, Clancy and Associates, will be on hand to discuss anticipated improvements for:
- public recreation

- water quality
Exhibits will emphasize a draft trails and water access plan as well as aesthetic plans for the lake shore and amenities. Staff members can address the anticipated timeline for various phases of the plans. Light refreshments will be available.
