The Forest Preserves of Cook County has launched a public process to create a Recreation Master Plan, involving both an online survey and public meetings to garner ideas for new programs and new facilities. "We want to provide innovative, creative recreational opportunities that not only introduce people to the forest preserves but keep them coming back," said General Superintendent Arnold Randall. "It just may be time to add something fresh -- we don't know what yet." Now through Aug. 10, take the online survey at to offer ideas on everything from new facilities to new activities. As well, two public meetings will be held in September and January, details of which will be posted at the same web address. The survey process began in May when the district queried nearly 4,000 randomly selected Cook County residents by mail, telephone and email.
