Youth sports to benefit from Forest Preserve purchase

in Community Sports/Elburn/Regional by
McNair_Map_Susan

BLACKBERRY TWP.—Thanks to the Kane County Forest Preserve, Elburn and Kaneland community sports teams will have an expanded field for softball and baseball, soccer, football and lacrosse.

Kane County Board District 18 Representative Drew Frasz attended last week’s Blackberry Township meeting to announce the purchase. The land, originally owned by the Gum family, was sold to the Forest Preserve by Donald Westlake, who was married to Helen Gum Westlake until her death in 2012.

The 62 acres is located on Bateman Road, south of and adjacent to McNair Field, where Elburn’s Youth Baseball and Softball team has played for years. The Forest Preserve paid $10,000 an acre for the land, for a total of approximately $620,000. The closing on the property took place Sept. 30.

The Forest Preserve will enter into an intergovernmental agreement with Blackberry Township, which will coordinate the development and construction of the field with the leagues.

The township has for some time carried an annual line item of $10,000 in its budget for youth sports, Blackberry Township Supervisor Fred Dornback said. He said the township would coordinate the use of the space, and will grade and seed the site, as well as providing rudimentary roads and parking areas.

Then it would be up to the youth sports groups to develop and maintain the fields, he said.

“We won’t be spending any new tax money,” Dornback said. “We’re in the facilitating business.”

Frasz said that he saw a lot of opportunities for people to donate their talent and time. He said the Forest Preserve sees this as a “citizen-led effort.”

The township will apply for an Open Space Land Acquisition and Development grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. If it receives the grant money, those funds, together with local fundraising and individual and company donations, will be used to make the necessary improvements.

One of the Forest Preserve’s requirements will be for portions of the property restored to prairie, with walking trails and benches for anyone to use. In addition, Dornback said one of the wishes of the township, going back to when Dave Anderson was the supervisor, is to have a common area where a family can get together to play volleyball, or kids can play pick-up games.

“When I was a kid, that’s how we did it,” Dornback said.

McNair Field had been leased by Blackberry Township from the Transmission Relay Corporation since it purchased the land in 2003. The lease had granted the local athletic leagues the use of five of the corporation’s 20 acres, located south and east of the intersection of Bateman and Rowe roads. The 10-year lease expired in April 2013.

Although the township negotiated a new lease with the owners, it was a short-term agreement.

“This will take away the fear of losing the land,” Frasz said. “It gives more long-term stability.”
