Winnetka Residents Vote Down Stormwater Referendum

The majority of Winnetka voters are not interested in a stormwater management tunnel under Willow Road.

They voted 1,679 to 1,402 against the plan in Tuesday’s non-binding referendum.

The referendum asked: "Should the Village of Winnetka implement the portion of the Village's Stormwater Management Program that includes building a tunnel under Willow Road to discharge stormwater into Lake Michigan, at an estimated project cost exceeding $30 million (plus substantial bond financing costs)?"

Voters also filled three council seats in a very close race.

The top three vote getters out of the five candidates were incumbent Stuart A. McCrary who had 26.08 percent of the vote; Carol A. Fessler with 22.32 percent of the vote; and Marilyn D. Prodromos, who had 19.36 percent of the vote. Scott A. Lewis had 18.7 percent and Mirela Gabrovska had 13.54 percent.

Turnout was 31 percent.
