Champaign County Forest Preserve District asking for input on new interpretive center

The Champaign County Forest Preserve District is holding a virtual public meeting to seek input on the study being conducted to envision a new interpretive center at Homer Lake Forest Preserve. This meeting is the first
public input session of the study, which will be completed in August 2020.

The goal of this project is to evaluate the possibility for a new interpretive center to expand educational offerings and harmoniously connect with the natural environment of the preserve. The study will identify programming and potential locations for the new center and its scale, character, and cost.

The forest preserve district is working with a team of consultants, including Lake|Flato Architects and MKSK, to facilitate this effort.


In this meeting, the consultants will describe the project purpose and existing conditions that factor into the project, seek to understand community preferences for the new interpretive center, and share examples of other similar facilities.

This first public meeting will be held virtually on 7/8/2020. Following the presentation, next steps will be shared, and questions will be taken.

Though current state and federal COVID-19 pandemic guidelines allow for gatherings with proper precautions, this meeting will be conducted virtually using Zoom software to ensure the safety of the public.

Details about this event will also be shared on the Champaign County Forest Preserve District’s webpage (www.ccfpd.org).

This public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 8th from 6 – 7 p.m. with opportunities to engage digitally via comments/questions virtually. Join via Zoom: For PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, or Android device.

Please register for this meeting by going to http://apm.activecommunities.com/ccfpd/Activity_Search/829.

The Zoom meeting information will be included in your receipt.
Before or after the meeting, questions or comments can be submitted to the project team by emailing Matt Wallace (mwallace@lakeflato.com).
