College To Submit New Plans for Baseball Stadium Complex

Although McHenry County College has had since at least 2005 to get its act together, it was revealed Thursday night at the Crystal Lake Park Board meeting that it hasn’t done so yet.

Playing a similar role to the one she performed in June and Wednesday night before the Crystal Lake Planning and Zoning Commission. McHenry County Defenders’ member Cindy Skrukrud discovered that McHenry County College will soon submit a revised plan to the City of Crystal Lake for its minor league baseball stadium.

With the help of Don Peters, Skrukrud held up the plan MCC has submitted to Crystal Lake for zoning approval and asked questions about the adequacy of water retention basins on both sides of the baseball stadium

Gary Schaefer of Hey and Associations, who serves as watershed consultant for both the city and the park district, said,

“That’s not necessarily an official submittal.

“They’ve gotten a recommendation from Hey and Associates for revisions.

“Very shortly they are going to be submitting their official submittal for the (baseball stadium complex).”

I wonder if that starts the clock over for the time limit given the Crystal Lake Planning and Zoning Commission.

MCC President Walt Packard seemed genuinely concerned when Crystal Lake Park Board President Mike Zellman asked the Commission to delay its decision.

The Commission set its next meeting for September 5th.
