Ad Hoc Committee for 7104 - 7110 West Touhy Avenue Improvement


The purpose of the Ad Hoc Committee is to undertake the planning and development of a sustainably driven expansion plan of the Niles Community Rain Garden site of 1.32 acres located at 7104 - 7110 West Touhy Avenue. The plan will creatively incorporate additional stormwater benefits, walking paths, art stations, iconic features and murals, LED lighting, educational signage, wayfinding, native plantings, and respite seating.
