Programs, facility and field use at the Takiff Center has grown beyond the existing parking infrastructure. Due to the continual lack of parking, the Board authorized a master plan process to create a long-term solution to address this constant issue.
The first step in this plan will be to break ground on two new parking lots the week of Monday, September 18. The first phase of construction will take place in the former skate park area, the second phase will be in the maintenance area.
The project will cause a significant disruption at the Takiff Center, but the end result will be 64 additional paved parking spaces, 14 additional bike parking spots, and a walking path around Reinsdorf Field. Work is expected to be completed in November.
