Not too late for Lakemoor

To the Editor:

On Feb. 28, the Lakemoor Village Board adopted a comprehensive plan for development that includes Lily Lake “as a key component of the community‘s identity.”

Toward that end, Lakemoor expanded Morrison Park, purchased two private properties, demolished the existing homes and two additional buildings in the park, and planned to build new bathroom facilities.

The new bathroom facility building prototype does not compliment the park. The proposed building will be built next to and look similar on one side to the existing garage on Lily Lake Parkway. There appears to be a narrow space between the buildings, gated at one end and blocked at the other, which creates a blind spot and is an area for concealed hangout and potential trouble.

It’s not too late to reconsider the building prototype. Your actions now will reflect upon any future village proposals to Lakemoor residents. Tear down the existing garage. Adopt and construct one facility such as the building at Heritage Park, attractive and functional on all sides, containing bathroom facilities, garage and concession space, and appropriate for a recreational park, instead of the current plan showing two buildings with facades that look like they belong in an industrial park.
