St. Charles Park District to appoint Cabel as new director

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Park Board is expected to appoint Holly Cabel as its next director on Tuesday, the St. Charles Park District announced Friday.

Cabel, a longtime St. Charles resident, will be the park district's second director since longtime director James Breen retired in early 2011. Ray Ochromowicz, Breen's successor, retired from the district Aug. 31.

Neither Cabel nor park board President Karrsten Goettel were available by phone Friday afternoon for comment.

Cabel has worked for the park district for 17 years, seven of which as the superintendent of recreation. She managed the recreation budget, which includes 1,500 annual programs and services at the Pottawatomie Community Center, Otter Cove Aquatic Park, Swanson Swimming Pool, River View Miniature Golf Course and the STC Underground Teen Center, according to the release.

Additionally, the release stated, Cabel has been directly involved in facility and park improvement projects, such as the construction of Otter Cove Aquatic Park and Hickory Knolls Discovery Center and the renovation of Swanson Swimming Pool.

She is also active in the St. Charles River Corridor Foundation, St. Charles Arts Council, Norris Cultural Art Center, Kane County Healthy Places Coalition and Kane County Fit for Kids, according to the release.

The park board's meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. in the Pottawatomie Community Center, 8 North Ave., St. Charles. Members will vote on Cabel's appointment as well as her contract.
