Forest preserve under consideration in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on May 7, 2014

Ottawa’s city limits may soon increase to the northeast by over 250 acres. It’s not for a new business or subdivision but for a forest preserve.

A hearing will be held at the June 3 Ottawa City Council meeting to talk about an annexation agreement with The Conservation Foundation to include the Dayton Bluffs Preserve inside Ottawa’s city limits. The city would pay the foundation a dollar a year to lease the land while conservationists would maintain it.

The preserve is along the east side of the Fox River and runs north to Interstate 80.
