The Horner Park Advisory Council has learned that the Horner Park River Bank Improvement Project from 2001 may be revived.

Through HPAC Vice President John Lyman’s diligent inquiries with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) it was revealed that in 2003 they had officially approved the project for further investigation.

In July of 2003 Chicago Park District General Superintendent David Doig agreed to share 35% of the estimated cost of $2.9 million. His letter is the last page of the 21-page PDF of the USACE’s memorandum the preliminary plan: approved prp.pdf.

Congressman Mike Quigley, US Representative for Illinois 5th congressional district, is crafting a budget proposal to take the project to the phase.

VOA has graciously provided the following documents for the project:
