D203 Board to vote on Knoch Park agreement in November

At Monday’s meeting, the Naperville School District 203 Board of Education had a preliminary discussion of a proposed renewal and amendment to an intergovernmental agreement with the Naperville Park District for amenities at Knoch Park.

Park district officials recently proposed to the school district a proposal for increased parking at the site in an effort to alleviate demand for some of the events taking place at Knoch Park. The plan includes adding 36 parking spaces to the existing lot, bringing the total up to 82 spots.

District 203’s share of the expense would be 43% of the total, or $450,000, based on terms of the intergovernmental agreement. A vote on the proposal is scheduled at District 203’s next board meeting on Nov. 13.
