The April 6th Referendum

With the majority of Norridge residents who participated in a December 2020 survey reporting that they frequently use the community pool, the rising costs of repairing the pool which was originally built in 1962, and 67% of residents indicating their support for placing a pool referendum on the ballot, the Park District Board has voted to file a referendum question on the April 6, 2021 ballot to ask the community for their support with this capital project.

The upgraded, safety-compliant structure and equipment will meet Illinois Department of Public Health Compliance and Model Aquatic Health Code standards, as well as allow access for people to enter and exit the water safely, fully meeting ADA Accessibility standards as well as the Illinois Accessibility Code.

But those are only some of the many great ways a new pool will benefit the Norridge community.

Growing up in Norridge, some of my favorite memories revolve around spending my summer vacation at the Norridge Pool with my friends. The pool is a very important part of Norridge where residents can bring their families, meet new friends, and enjoy the summer days.
Chris O’Leary, Norridge Resident

The pool is the heart of our community’s summer. For 60 years the sights and sounds of enjoyment has resonated from the pool. We look forward to providing our community with what they want, a safe, fun summer at their pool.
Dorothy Ellsworth, Board Member, Norridge Park District
Raising our three children in Norridge, we spent most of our free time at the Park. From the Pre School/Day Care Program to the many athletic programs. The one area our family has enjoyed every summer is the pool. Norridge Park is Truly the hub of our community!
Bill Larson, Norridge Resident
