H-F Park District expecting to receive $400,000 grant on second try

This time, the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District may get its $400,000 from the State of Illinois.

“We’re excited at the prospect. We pretty much wrote that off,” Renae Ross, superintendent of finance and administration, said.

Park District Executive Director Debbie Kopas is filing the necessary paperwork to show the state how The Clubhouse at Dolphin Lake still fits into the grand scheme laid out in its original 2014 Open Space Land Acquisition and Development (OSLAD) grant application to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.  

The $400,000 was approved . . .
