Winnetka hosted their first of two stormwater town hall meetings on Sept. 19. The project is set to cost $41.5 million, and will include a $34.5 million tunnel at Willow Rd. An article by Winnetka Talk states that dozens of residents attended the meeting, with some praising the project - and others scrutinizing it.
"This has started as a small project that snowballed into a [large] project," said resident Anne Wilder, according to Winnetka Talk. "The council is proceeding too quickly and making decisions too rapidly."
"This is a fabulous plan and a plan we have to do," said Michael Canmann, a supporter of the plan, according to Winnetka Talk.
The next stormwater town hall meeting is set for Wed. at 6:30 p.m. at the Winnetka Community House. More information on that meeting is available here.
