McHenry County SportsPlex Still Seeking Investors

The main building of the proposed SportsPlex.

Thought it was time to check up on the progress of the McHenry County SportsPlex planned for Lakewood.

So, I called chief honcho Lou Tenore.

He told me his group is no long seeking government money or financing from the EB-5 “buy a visa” (my words, not his) program.

Nevertheless foreign investors are being courted.

Tenore told me that a firm the developers have engaged to raise money is “actively working on it.”

The end of July the Lakewood Village Board voted 4-3 to extend its deal with the SportsPlex for six months.
