The head of the Champaign Park District said upgrading and maintaining the district's facilities is a very important part of what the organization does.
Ratio Architects, which has a Champaign office, will give a presentation Thursday night at a public meeting on the proposed improvements to Douglass Park at 512 East Grove Street.
Champaign Park District Executive Director Joe DeLuce said the meeting will include a review of the master plan for the park. DeLuce said the park district is waiting to hear from the state on whether it will receive a $300,000 grant which will help pay for the $600,000 project. He said the plan for Douglass Park includes several improvements.
