The American Planning Association – Illinois Chapter (APA-IL) recently awarded the Winnetka Waterfront 2030 a 2016 Illinois State Planning Award. This planning effort exemplifies the practice of urban planning and stands as an example of way members are “Making Great Communities Happen”. Scott Freres, co-founder and principal of The Lakota Group accepted the award at the 2016 APA-IL State Conference Chapter Awards Ceremony on September 28, 2016.
The Winnetka Park District Board of Commissioners engaged the services of The Lakota Group (Project Leader/Landscape Architects), Gewalt Hamilton Associates (Civil Engineering), Shabica & Associates (Bluff Restoration and Coastal Engineering), Baird & Associates (Coastal Engineering) and OKW Architects (Recreation Architect/Facility Assessments) working as one team to assist the Park District with this Lakefront Master Plan. This plan encompassed a community engagement process for the long-term viability of this natural resource. Focus was on infrastructure, traffic, parking, bluff restoration, coastal/environmental issues, preservation and enhancement of native shoreline habits, facility usage and programming needs.
