Councilmember Bob Blumenfield was our guest speaker for our February 9, 2016 meeting, engaging in a conversation with Winnetka residents and board members.

Blumenfield spoke on a range of topics, including his proposed incentives to lower energy bills, the City’s plan to address homelessness, and other hot topics at City Hall. Additionally, Blumenfield was pleased to hear directly from Winnetka residents and stakeholders on their community priorities.

Among the community “wins” Blumenfield was pleased to present to the community was the completion of a new fence for the Winnetka Recreation Center. The new fence will provide peace of mind and security for the neighboring residents and childcare center. This is a great relief to the WNC who has repeatedly heard concerns about homeless encampments at the park and requests for a fence to help address the issue.
