What are the uses of the Lincoln-Way North Building?
Because the bonds used to build Lincoln-Way North are tax exempt bonds, the permissible uses of the building are limited to public institutions or governmental use. This would include entities such as public schools, colleges and universities, or park districts.
Who currently uses Lincoln-Way North?
District 210 currently has an intergovernmental agreement with the Frankfort Square Park District. The agreement with the FSPD allows community members to use parts of the building, such as the field house, outside facilities, track, and weight room. In addition to paying the district, FSPD reduces costs to the district by maintaining the grounds and removing the snow.
Why hasn’t the district rented out certain parts of Lincoln-Way North to interested parties?
Public institutions or government entities who express interest in renting Lincoln-Way North must be willing to cover the cost of maintaining the facilities that they intend to use. The District will not rent portions of the Lincoln-Way North building unless the cost is covered by the renter.
