From Trustee Eric Czubaj
This past November, we officially re-opened our Winter Youth Recreation program at its new location, in the downstairs of the Community Center on Halstead Avenue. The move plan was developed and overseen by Michele Kramarsyck, our Youth Recreation Supervisor. Our Highway Department was instrumental in painting, running electrical for the exercise equipment, moving furniture, foosball, air hockey tables and more. The program operates every Friday from 6:00 to 9:00pm and Saturdays, 12:00 to 6:00pm. The Griffith Park Sports Courts are near completion with only pavement lining remaining. Late autumn, our contractor installed sidewalks along Griffith Street and inside the park connecting the two shelters. Through the generous grant money provided by Assemblywoman Monica Wallace, we are expecting delivery of eight new picnic tables, two of which are ADA compliant. Park Shelter B has deteriorated supports and will be rehabilitated when the weather cooperates. With the increased use of the park and splashpad, the rental of our shelters generates additional income for our Village while providing our families an accessible facility for use. Every year, the Village receives Community Development Block Grant funding through HUD. These funds are limited to certain projects and LMI areas (Low-Mod Income). For our 2023 and upcoming 2024 funds, we will be investing in new Wrazen Park recreation equipment, replacing a 25+ year old playset. Our Easter Event will be on April 8th, 12:00pm at the Fire Hall...Chocolate raffle, refreshments and pictures with the Easter Bunny! Village resident ID will be required at door.
