The Forest Preserve District Board of Commissioners created the committee in January 2019 to explore the best public use for the Green Farm Barn at Greene Valley Forest Preserve in Naperville. The committee met for months to come up with a recommended best public use for the Greene Barn complex that aligns with the District’s mission and master plan goals and objectives. The committee was tasked with identifying partnerships, funding sources and potential revenues, and include analysis of costs for development, operations and maintenance.
