I missed both City Council meetings this month because of travel. The minutes of the first meeting I missed are here. (The minutes of the second meeting will not be publicly available until after they are approved at the first July meeting.) I also missed the Rensselaer BZA meeting with the old Biggs farm item on the agenda.
The JCEDO newsletter for July devoted much of its page to the designation of the Kankakee River as a National Water Trail. The designation does not change much but will give the river more publicity as place for recreation. For more, see here.
NICHES has some upcoming events in our area. There will be a viewing of the video “Fisher Oak Savanna Nature Preserve” at the Jasper Foundation (Carnegie Building in Rensselaer) on Tuesday July 12 at 6 pm CT and guided walks at Holley Savanna on July 6 at 5 pm CT and another at the Fisher Oak Savanna on July 24 from 2 until 4 pm CT.
