The Village of Godfrey is making plans to move forward with plans to develop the rest of Glazebrook Park along Stamper Lane. The board voted 4-2 to move ahead with spending the original sum of $1.8 million – which will come from the sewer fund – plus an additional $400,000 from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
That is less than the $3.8 million that had been discussed recently. Virginia Woulfe-Beile and Nathan Schrumpf offered the NO votes. Godfrey Park & Rec Director Todd Strubhart tells The Big Z what happens now.

Work should begin in May, and the current end date is July 31, 2022. Plans for the development of the middle part of the park include pickleball courts, a fitness court, a splash pad, all-inclusive playground, a 1-mile walking trail, ADA compliant fishing pier, and restroom/concession facilities.
