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.
