Wilmette Harbor to close this summer

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

It appears that Wilmette Harbor will not be open this summer, leaving hundreds of boaters without a place to store their vessel.

The group that has managed the harbor for the past 75 years had their lease bid rejected by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District.

Hundreds of people also took sailing lessons at the harbor each summer.

The 300-slip harbor is located between the Baha'I Temple and Lake Michigan.
