The Kane County Forest Preserve District Study began with the Study of Potential Gravel Mining in Brunner Forest Preserve in 2010-2012.  The follow-up Kane County Forest Preserve District Study expanded the scope to include compliance with the Downstate Forest Preserve Act, public transparency, and the “mission drift” from the District’s own mission statement and goals.  In 2014-2015, the study focused on monitoring of current policies and practices, a comparison to other Districts, and educating elected officials and voters on the issues.  For 2015-2016, the study group will become a standing committee to monitor and report on the Forest Preserve District.
