City of Sterling, Illinois

Central Park/Grandon

Central Park/Grandon Civic Center has gotten more use in recent years, but it has some aging infrastructure from lights to trees. Here's a concept that's been created to update the park and hopefully make it more adaptable and friendly for a variety of uses. While it may not happen all at once, we'd like to use some TIF funds to get a good start on this in the next year or two. Give us your thoughts!!! Click the title to see the concepts! What's good? What's bad? What's missing? Comment on Facebook or at
