Community Engagement Session 4

No power?  No problem!  Even though April 25th was a rainy day and the power was DSC_0320out for many residents, the Lisle community came out strong yet again to join the Vision 202 conversation.

This time around we had the opportunity to hear from Mr. Mark Jolicoeur of Perkins+Will.  This architecture and design firm was involved in the Lisle High School project in 2002.  Mr. Jolicoeur presented a brief overview of the current facilities including:  Tate Woods Elementary School, Schiesher Elementary School, Lisle Jr. High School, Lisle High School, and the Meadows Center.  The audience then learned about the upcoming Facilities Master Plan , slated to begin during the 2015-2016 school year.  During this collaborative planning process, community members will again be invited to participate in discussions to help in creating recommendations for the future needs of the facilities.

Following the presentation, Vision 202 participants got right to work addressing two tasks.  The first task asked the small groups to brainstorm issues that they feel need to be examined during next year’s facilities master plan process, then prioritize their list down to the top five items.  Task two asked participants to help in the preparation for the upcoming planning by listing information or data that would be helpful to have available at the onset of the discussions.  The conversation led to many interesting ideas and also showed trends in the community’s thinking.  More information about next years Facilities Master Planning process will be shared toward the beginning of the next school year.
