Vote yes on RF rec center referendum

I have attended three of the most recent River Forest Park District board meetings, and co-hosted a meeting to learn about the Feb. 2 referendum to acquire the Oilily property and build a park district facility. Questions by those in attendance ranged from “Is this the best you can do for a community such as River Forest (the building needs to be more visionary and expansive)?” to “Why would we expand beyond the space in the train depot?” and everything in between.
