The next use of new money granted to the Kane County Forest Preserve District in its last referendum will likely come in two pieces of property that will add more than 100 new acres to the preserves.It couldn't be a better time to buy land, and keeping Kane County looking rural benefits homeowners. Some comments say no one will use these new preserves. I doubt that, but even so, the benefits at these prices far outweigh the negatives. Thanks to Kane County FP Board for looking towards the future during some tough times.
District officials announced Friday they had closed on 20 acres of green space along the lake run near Dick Young Forest Preserve in Batavia.
