Lake Zurich officials will present a new concept for the second phase of improvements to Paulus Park during a public hearing Tuesday.
This will be the third version of the proposal, and officials said it will be a combination of ideas and modifications outlined in the first two versions discussed by the village's park and recreation advisory board and representatives from Norris Design.

Parks and recreation department officials have been working with consultants for the past couple of weeks outlining a master plan.
The first public meeting, held June 1, presented two concepts with several additions and changes to the park at 200 S. Rand Road.
These included a shelter that can hold up to 100 people, an outdoor amphitheater, a dog park, and a playground with interactive learning features.
Total estimated cost of the improvements is about $800,000, and officials have said they will apply by July 1 for a $400,000 OSLAD, or Open Land Acquisition and Development, grant to fund the project.
The public hearing is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Lake Zurich Village Hall. Residents are encouraged to attend and provide feedback to the current plan.
