  • Carol Stream Park District seeks sign approval May 14, 2013 12:00 AM
    The Carol Stream Park District is seeking village zoning approvals to construct a 13-foot, 8-inch welcome sign in front of the new recreation center that is scheduled to open this summer. Parks officials are also seeking village permission to attach two acrylic placards onto an existing sign at the Town Center as a way to provide motorists on Lies Road with directional signage for the rec center. The requests come after the village and park boards were unable to come to an agreement about shared signage on the Town Center site at Gary Avenue and Lies Road.

  • Carol Stream Village President Frank Saverino said Wednesday during his annual State of the Village address that a flood control project planned at Armstrong Park will help mitigate flooding in the area — but won't solve it completely. A large dirt mound sits at the construction site now, but the project is expected to begin this year.

    Carol Stream mayor: Flood relief efforts will help May 8, 2013 12:00 AM
    Carol Stream Village President Frank Saverino said Wednesday the stormwater management system set for construction in Armstrong Park might not solve all the village's flooding problems, but it will help. The stormwater project will consist of two above ground reservoirs on the south side of the park and a siphon that will release stormwater to a downstream point in Klein Creek. Construction could begin as early as this summer. And while it's intended to help ease flooding in the park and nearby neighborhood, it won't rid the area of flooding completely, Saverino said.

  •  Now that the Carol Stream village board has rejected plans to alter existing signs at the Town Center, park district officials say they are going to be adding signs of their own near the new recreation center.

    Carol Stream Park District to pursue own signs Feb 27, 2013 12:00 AM
    The Carol Stream Park District is developing signs to put near its new recreation center after the village board said it didn’t want to share costs to alter existing signage on site. Parks officials will meet with Williams Architects early next week to discuss the design for possibly two signs — a large one in front of the building that fronts Gary Avenue, and a smaller one near the Lies Road entrance, officials said. That means there could be as many as four signs on the Town Center site.

    Ex-Carol Stream mayor upset over sign name change Feb 13, 2013 12:00 AM
    The longest-serving village president in Carol Stream history says he’s upset and disappointed about plans that would remove his name from signs at the Town Center he helped to create. Two existing signs on the 22-acre property at the corner of Gary Avenue and Lies Road say “Ross Ferraro Town Center,” but initial sketches from an architect hired by the village and park district to design changes to the signs proposes removal of Ferraro’s name. “I always believed when you dedicate something to a person, you do not undedicate it," Ferraro said.

  •  Village and park district officials in Carol Stream have proposed that current identification signs at Town Center be modified in advance of the opening of the new recreation center. But the two sides can’t agree on whether to split the cost.

That’s the estimated maximum price to redo one identification sign at the Ross Ferraro Town Center, where the park district’s new recreation center is set to open this summer.

    “Wow” was the word Saturday morning as Carol Stream park district and village officials toured the Fountain View Recreation Center under construction at Gary and Lies roads. Wows for the poo, the geothermal heating and cooling system and the fitness center facing a manicured park. And wows especially to see the facility — the park district's largest building project at $18 million and 90,846 square-feet — inching closer to completion.

  • Carol Stream Park District could end up paying DuPage County more than expected for its portion of a flood relief project earmarked for Armstrong Park — which has been delayed due to a lengthy state permit review process.

    Carol Stream could pay more for flood project Jan 25, 2013 12:00 AM
    Carol Stream Park District may have to pay DuPage County more than expected for stormwater storage space at soon-to-be constructed flood reservoirs in Armstrong Park. But this week, DuPage County Stormwater Management Department Director Tony Charlton said it was unfair to say project costs have risen, since the first price estimate — which he labeled as $330,000 — was likely a placeholder that park district staff devised during the budgeting process.

    Since the 1960s, the village of Carol Stream has owned a 16.38-acre parcel of land that separates the northern and southern portions of Armstrong Park owned by the Carol Stream Park District. But village officials say now is a good time to transfer the land to the park district so current recreational uses on the south side of the park that will be displaced by a $5 million county stormwater management project can be relocated.
