The Public Forum is being held at the Community Center, 4501 25th Avenue, at 6:00 PM on Tuesday May 24th. All interested residents are invited to attend and learn more about what the Village believes will be a substantially reduced floodplain after a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) review has been completed in roughly one year. Preliminary maps of the suggested new floodplain will be shared as will the next steps in the process. The Village Engineer and the consulting engineers who recently completed the study for the Villages of Schiller Park and Franklin Park will offer their thoughts and will be available to answer questions.
The attached photo shows Crystal Creek before the improvements were made in recent years - it serves as a reminder of how far we have already come with this process. Please plan to attend this important briefing on what promises to be a critical last phase of this project.
