Open Forum on MCC Baseball Stadium in Woodtock Friday Night

Three McHenry County residents will speak at a 7 PM Friday night forum at Woodstock’s Congregational Unitarian Church on September 29th.

One is the woman–Donna Kurtz–who was president of the McHenry County College board when it approved the baseball stadium-fitness center complex on Crystal Lake’s watershed.

Another is Mike Walkup, an outspoken opponent of the expansion. He serves on the Crystal Lake Park Board.

The third is Dennis Dreher, vice chairman of the McHenry County Regional Planning Commission.

Open discussion and audience participation is being encouraged by The Fourth Friday Forum organizers.

“Since the proposal surfaced this spring substantial opposition has developed mostly around concern for the Crystal Lake watershed,” according to Margaret Fox-Hawthorn, chair of the church’s Green Sanctuary Committee which sponsors the program.

The Fourth Friday Forums are held monthly to examine critical issues of environmental importance in McHenry County. The programs are always free and open to the public.
