  • Flooding prevention project gets leg up in Carol Stream May 20, 2013 10:41 PM
    A $7 million stormwater management project aimed at reducing flooding in Carol Stream is a step closer to getting off the ground. The village board Monday approved final plans for construction of two aboveground reservoirs in Armstrong Park and a siphon that will release stormwater to a downstream point in Klein Creek. The project is being coordinated by DuPage County, but a 2011 intergovernmental agreement stipulates that final plans be approved by the village and park district. The park board gave its approval in February.

  • Carol Stream Park District seeks sign approval May 14, 2013 5:59 PM
    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 mayor: Flood relief efforts will help May 8, 2013 6:49 PM
    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.

     
  • Carol Stream Park District to pursue own signs Feb 27, 2013 4:52 PM
    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 4:19 PM
    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.

    “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 could pay more for flood project Jan 25, 2013 10:19 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.

    New Year's Eve always comes early for kids.
