Lockport Street Plainfield, IL 60544 Phone (815) 436-7093 Fax (815) 436-1950 Web www.plainfield-il.org Press Release September 8, 2020 For Immediate Publication: New Riverfront Master Plan Web Site Launches Residents Encouraged To Share Their Ideas for Riverfront Plainfield, IL – The Village is working with Applied Ecological Services (AES) and Houseal Lavigne to develop a new master plan for the Plainfield Riverfront from Route 59 to Renwick Road with particular emphasis on the Riverfront’s connection to Downtown Plainfield. Over the past few months, usage of the Riverfront and DuPage River has increased exponentially with residents looking for new outdoor recreational opportunities. The pandemic has also reinforced the importance of open space to the community and the need to improve the area around the DuPage River for residents and visitors to enjoy. What would like to see at the Riverfront? Trails? A boat launch? Open space? Share your ideas for the Riverfront through the new Master Plan web site, https://hla.fyi/PlainfieldRiverfrontMasterPlan: • Tell us what you would like to see at the Riverfront by completing a brief online survey; • Utilize the online mapping tool, map.social, to show what features and amenities you would like to see at the Riverfront; or • E-mail the project team your ideas. The project site also includes information about the plan and the latest project news. Once the plan is complete, the Village will pursue grant funding opportunities for projects along the Riverfront.
