Huntley parks: No

Published: Friday, March 14, 2014 8:32 a.m. CDT

In 2011, the Huntley Park District adopted a master plan.

The plan utilized input from the community. This plan includes a capital prioritization chapter that names projects, costs and priorities for each park.

There is no $18.75 million “Recreation Turf Facility” in the master plan for any park. The most expensive project in the plan is a $4 million turf field for Tomaso Sports Park that is a priority four project. The park district has gone through the expense and energy to generate a master plan, and in less than three years ignores it along with the input garnered from its constituency.

I’m not against the park district; I’m against the taxes. The referendum is configured to maintain the current taxes if it passes, but if the referendum fails, your property taxes will go down.

Vote “no,” and let our taxes go down.
