The farmhouse and the surrounding 165 acres of the Perry Farm property could be officially annexed into Bradley by as early as September.

BRADLEY — If all goes as planned, the annexation of a Bourbonnais Township Park District park property into Bradley could be complete by early September.

Bradley Mayor Mike Watson said following Monday’s Bradley Village Board meeting the first step will be the adoption of a park board resolution requesting annexation of the 165-acre parcel which is the Perry Farm property immediately west of Kennedy Drive at West Broadway Street.

A public hearing will also be needed, which is anticipated to take place in perhaps early to mid-July. He said the annexation could be in place about 45 days following that action.
