September 14, 2021

A $950,000 soccer field and running track will be built at West Town’s Talcott School through a financing proposal approved by City Council today.

The project at 1840 W. Ohio St. will include $650,000 in financing through the City’s Open Space Impact Fee (OSIF) program, which leverages construction fees paid by residential development projects.

The remainder of the funding will be paid through a State of Illinois grant.
