Elgin-based Martam Construction Inc. has been awarded a $15.5 million contract to complete a multimillion-dollar renovation of Oak Meadows Golf Preserve that will increase stormwater storage, create new wetlands and improve the environmental quality of the property in Addison. Work will start in July.
Land for two existing courses will be adapted to make a single 18-hole, par-72 course with greater flood resistance. The project also will restore the site’s natural habitat and improve flood control along Salt Creek, The Daily Herald reported.
“I’m thrilled because it represents a collective vision that allows us to improve both the ecology on the property as well as the recreational opportunity,” Ed Stevenson, the district’s director of business enterprises, was quoted as saying “To know that we have a contract in place, a timeline in place and plans ready to move forward is very exciting.”
