The public is invited to tour the Five Seasons Sports Club May 20 and 21 and offer feedback on specific amenities as the kick-off to the public input process on the Northbrook Park District’s proposed purchase of the facility, according to an article in the Northbook Star.
The Northbrook Park District hopes to buy the Five Seasons Family Sports Club in order to turn it into a community recreation center. The board is expected to vote to put the process in motion at its meeting Thursday night.
The purchase of the club and a 99-year-lease on an 18-acre parcel of land it sits on on Techny Road would cost $20.3 million and would be contingent on voters approving the purchase in a referendum in November.
The $5 million cost of the land lease would be paid for by park district reserves. Voters would need to weigh in on the $15.3 building purchase price tag plus any extra funds needed to renovate the space.
The park district’s open houses will be May 20 from 7-9 p.m. and May 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., according to the Northbrook Star article. There will be about 10 stations in the club. Visitors will be asked their thoughts on those stations. There will be another open house in June, though the date has not yet been set.
