There is still open space in DuPage County and we are working to preserve it.
In April 2013, we completed an open space plan for the county in conjunction with the park districts, municipalities and private, resident volunteers. From this plan, we developed a list of property owners to contact to see if they have an interest in preserving their property. We have gotten a lot of positive feedback and we are working with landowners throughout the county. Not only are we preserving the land, we are working with DuPage County Stormwater Management to clean up the rivers through their Adopt-A-Stream, Clean Sweep, Storm Drain Stenciling and River Watch programs.
