Harley Clarke meeting planned


A community meeting on a possible new use for the Harley Clarke mansion on the Evanston lakefront is planned for 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, in the Parasol Room at the Civic Center.

Last September, the City Council directed the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Board and the Lighthouse Landing Complex Committee to develop a plan for the future operation of the Harley Clarke property.

A planning committee with members of the two groups has been meeting monthly since November with interested residents to discuss proposals for the property.

The committee has focused on the proposal for an environmental education center developed by Evanston Lakehouse and Gardens.

The April 26 meeting will feature a presentation about the proposed environmental education center and the financial plan behind it and seek community input about the proposal.
