The Chicago Park District has received approval from its Board of Commissioners to initiate the 45-day notice period to amend Chapter VII, Section E of the Code of the Chicago Park District.
Chapter 70 ILCS 1505/7.02, enables the Board of Commissioners to “establish by ordinance all needful rules and regulations for the government and protection of parks…” Therefore, it is recommended that the following chapter of the Chicago Park District Code be amended to reflect the following additions or modifications of language and/or section: Chapter VII, Section E (Amendments).
The District wishes to update procedures associated with naming and renaming parks and park features. Additionally, the District wishes to add additional language associated with the renaming of already named parks. This action would include a name removal period and the procedures associated there within. It is was therefore recommended that Chapter VII, Section E of the Code be amended. Approval of the amendment initiated a 45-day notice period to enact comments from the public regarding said amendment. Once the 45-day notice period has concluded the amendment will return to the board for final approval from the Board of Commissioners.
