Statement of the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association/Canal Shores

The Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association issued the following statement on Nov. 16 regarding the 5-4 vote to allow the Cook County Highway Department construct a road through a portion of one hole of the golf course:

"On November 15, the MWRD Board voted 5-4 to approve the request for an easement on the 10th hole of Canal Shores Golf Course that will pave the way for construction of a 426-foot-long road for the benefit of a politically-connected landowner. While this vote is a stunning setback and sets a dangerous precedent by permitting the use of public land for private benefit, this is only the first step in a much larger battle, one that is not over yet. Canal Shores has been around for 100 years, and we will fight to ensure it is around for another 100 years. 

"We are grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support from golfers, neighbors, conservationists and countless others who oppose construction of a roadway at public expense for the sole benefit of a private developer."
