The Public Works & Parks crews will begin removal of the current playground structure at Lions Park the week of May 12, 2014. The removal will be weather dependent, however, should take approximately two to three days total. During the time of removal, as well as afterward, the area will be sectioned off to disallow access for safety concerns. The anticipated placement of the new equipment is slotted for June 16, 2014.
It has been some time since the last update on the Beautification project. This project will take place in phases, with the remainder of the worked on areas still requiring the placement of benches, garbage cans and planters, both hanging and in ground. There has not been a firm time line associated with this area, which I will term as Phase 2. As timelines for arrival and placement are set, I will make all aware of the dates which have been selected.
Phase 3 will see the removal and replacement of concrete, lamp standards etc. Mirroring Phase 1 of the project. This work will take place on the remaining block running adjacent to the Town Administration Office to Lions Park. Both sides of the street will be worked upon, providing a unified, completed look.
The work on this section is slated to begin May 3rd 2014 please be advised, this date and the subsequent work is of course weather dependent. As things progress, updates on time lines and materials will be provided in this format once again.
