About this Article
Gov. Pat Quinn came to Carol Stream Monday to sign legislation enabling the park district to borrow all $37 million for park improvement projects approved by voters in a February 2010 referendum. The bill signing took place at the site of the park district's $18 million, two-story recreation center now under construction. "I think the will of the people expressed in that referendum was to build the (recreation center). It would not be fully built if we weren't able to sign this bill," Quinn said. "Folks expressed their opinion in a binding referendum and to carry out that will, the law had to be adjusted."
