Lake County Forest Preserve District officials are considering a staff recommendation to add or replace about $3 million in various projects to the capital plan. Proposals include public access to two preserves, as well as trails or trail connections in other locations. "We look at most of these as projects of opportunity," Mike Fenelon, the district's director of planning, conservation and development, said of the proposed additions.
