May 12th Update

AAF hosted Alderman Vasquez, Tiffany Sostrin and London Walther of the Chicago Park District and Mike Vacala from Winnemac PAC to hear results of the Alderman's Turf Survey and to continue the conversation surrounding Turf at Winnemac Park fields at their May Board Meeting. Discussions included funding a project like this and reviewing the process from design to installation.

The AAF formed a committee that will be made up of board members and community members to continue these conversations with Alderman Vasquez and the Chicago Park District.
