District Secures Vendor for Lake Bluff Tennis Courts

In early March, the Shorewood School District sought proposals for the design and construction of two new tennis courts at the Lake Bluff Elementary School. After careful review of the proposals, the District has selected Munson Inc. to complete the construction of the courts and Kapur and Associated to create the design for the project.

The project is expected to begin directly after the end of the school year in June, with the goal of completing installation before the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. Prior to the start of construction, the District plans to organize an open session to allow community members to see the design for the courts, once the design is completed. This session will be scheduled before the end of the school year.

Funding for the tennis courts was raised through a joint, community effort that included funding from the Lake Bluff PTO, the Village of Shorewood, the Shorewood School District and Recreation Department, and a generous grant from the Shorewood Foundation.

More detailed information regarding the community session and the construction timeline will be provided to community members in the coming weeks via School Board agenda and on the Shorewood Schools website. Questions may be directed to Brenda Rowland in Shorewood School District Business Office at
