Lake in the Hills Fen Conservation Area Master Plan - Lake in the Hills, IL

This 234 acre site contains sensitive features including a fen, creek and wetlands. HR Green analyzed the opportunities and constraints of these features and assessed the feasibility of site improvements to limit impact upon native plant and wildlife communities.

HR Green conducted public meetings with District staff, stakeholders and coordinated with government agencies to elicit comments regarding site use and Master Plan development. Using this feedback HR Green prepared a Comprehensive Master Plan Report to accommodate the community’s increased demand for open space concurrent with the District’s preservation efforts. It documented site analysis, a wetland delineation, master plan, estimates of cost, and management implementation guidelines. The plan included a rain garden, shelter, trails, educational signage and parking. Ultimately, HR Green prepared construction documents and assisted in the project bidding.
