Evergreen Park

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARBONDALE – Today, Governor JB Pritzker’s Administration announced the recipients of the Rebuild Illinois Grants, which were awarded to communities to help jumpstart capital improvement projects.

The City of Carbondale was awarded $1,245,541 by the Governor’s Office and the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to make accessibility improvements at Evergreen Park.

“Investments aimed toward building modern infrastructure and fostering stronger and better-connected communities are at the center of our historic $45 billion capital plan,” said Governor Pritzker.

The funding will be used to make significant upgrades at Evergreen Park, including the replacement of the bathrooms, paving of all roads and parking lots within the park, and adding sidewalks to make the park more accessible.

More than 250 applications were submitted, and only 17 communities received funding. The work at Evergreen Park will begin within 90 days.

It’s a cultural town, yet free of pretense, embracing the great outdoors as readily as urban sophistication. Here, we are open to new ideas, experiences and cultures, so you are encouraged to both express yourself and be yourself, in all ways. That’s Carbondale…All Ways Open… for family, fun, business, new ideas and a bright tomorrow.”
