New Lenox Park District Master Plan
Planning Resources was retained by the New Lenox Community Park District to prepare an update to their current comprehensive master plan. The Plan was to be developed in two volumes – Volume 1 included a comprehensive overview of the District’s existing p ark facilities, operations, and maintenance strategies. The second volume included an overall assessment of the District’s buildings and structures, and a long range improvement strategy for the District’s Sanctuary Golf Course. The buildings were assessed for potential uses as well as visible maintenance issues. The issues were prioritized based on expediency and costs. The long range strategic plan for the golf course consisted of a detailed assessment and written (GolfSWOT) analysis summarizing the strength and weaknesses of each golf hole. Some of the key concerns targeted drainage issues, pace of play or playability issues, and maintenance efficiency issues. The plan included order of magnitude cost estimates and a potential phasing schedule to allow the District to prioritize the specific projects on a hole by hole basis based on cost and other criteria of their choosing.
“Our district is continually impressed with Planning Resources Inc.’s attention to detail, including but not limited to their very knowledgeable staff, creativity in design and keeping in mind budget concerns, adherence to project timelines and goals; as well as, being a strong advocate when called upon to interact with contractors. Their willingness to interact with contractors is evident by contractors applauding their thoroughness with construction design and specifications. The New Lenox Community Park District is proud to endorse the professionalism and ability of this firm and will continue to utilize Planning Resources Inc. in the future.”
