Proposed rendering of Splash Pad. Rendering from City of Evanston
City Council voted on Jan. 8 to enter into a 50-year lease for the former Shore School property, at 2525 Church St. from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District. Rent totals only $10 per year, but the lease requires the City to spend up to $400,000 to demolish the existing school building within five years. The lease also limits the use of the property to recreational uses and requires a stormwater management plan, which, according to a report by City staff, is expected to be a rain garden.
