Message: Winnebago County has a proposed land use plan that has a possibility of allowing an industrial park site along the banks of the Kishwaukee River, thus threatening to destoy the Kishwaukee Watershed. The Rock River Times has an article in the current paper describing what is happening. I encourage you and your membership to become involved in stopping this from happening. Should you have any questions please feel free to call me directly at 815-243-3678


This is going to be a hard proposition to stop. There local park district, along with several other groups opposes this but more help is needed getting the word out!
