Linda Painter
DuPage County Forest Preserve Commissioner
District 3


    Some of my accomplishments since taking office . . . and more to come.

bulletDirectional Signs: After finding that Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve was challenging to navigate without getting lost, I initiated new signage for Waterfall Glen.  Waterfall Glen was a pilot project, and because the signs were found to be very helpful, they are now being used in the other forest preserves in DuPage County.
bulletOff-Leash Dog Park in Oldfield Oaks Forest Preserve: Seeing a need for a dog park in southeast DuPage County, I was instrumental in creating a new dog park with separate areas for large and small dogs.
bullet Improved communication to local residents about Forest Preserve events:  I send out informative emails to keep you up to date on programs and events happening in the DuPage County Forest Preserves.  Many viewers have had the opportunity to participate in forest preserve activities because of my emails.  I respect your email and consider it a privilege to be able to keep you up to date on the preserves.     To sign up for my e-Newsletter click here .
bulletLand Acquisition: Led a group of Timberlake neighbors in collecting funds to help purchase additional land by the Forest Preserve District.  Since taking office I helped acquire over 100 acres of open space in District 3 adding to the forest preserve holdings in DuPage County.
bulletGreene Valley 79th Street Spur Trail: worked cooperatively with several governmental entities to provide a much needed spur trail for nearby residents to safely access Greene Valley Forest Preserve.
bulletOpening of St. James Farm:  was instrumental in opening St. James Farm Forest Preserve to the public on a daily basis year round.
bulletWorking on adding 200 parking spots at Waterfall Glen near Bluff and Cass
