Webster Township Hall is getting a new parking lot.

After a few decades of use and wear and tear, the parking lot at 5665 Webster Church Road is getting a new look.

Earlier this month, Webster Township Supervisor John Kingsley sent out a message to the community: “Webster Township’s recycling dumpsters are being repositioned to the South parking lot (gravel). They will be there during Phase one of the parking lot reconstruction. After phase one, there may be a short period of time when they will not be available, we will keep you updated on our website. The North driveway will be closed.”

Kingsley said during the reconstruction, township offices will maintain normal office hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, “however, you will need to enter the building through the South entrance into the meeting room. There will be a marked walking route from the gravel parking lot.”

The Sun Times News asked township treasurer John Scharf about the project, which he said is the latest significant project by the township that is funded without incurring any debt.

“The previous asphalt parking lot was the original construction from the mid 90’s,” Scharf said. “After nearly 30 years, the lot reached the end of its useful life.”

The job is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete.

“The new concrete parking lot is being constructed to last a very long time,” according to Scharf. “It is expected to be relatively maintenance free. We are expanding the lot southward with asphalt to provide additional public parking. Among other benefits, this addition is expected to provide substantially improved access for all to the Historic Webster Village and their new walking path.”
