Repave path through Perkins Woods?


What do you think about the plan to repave one of the paths through Perkins Woods in northwest Evanston?

Cook County officials say they need to double the width of the path to 10 feet so maintenance trucks can get down the path without creating ruts that fill with water and breed mosquitoes.

But neighbors at a public forum Tuesday night objected to the plan, saying the new path would be like a highway that would destroy the rustic nature of the county's smallest forest preserve.
