PARK UPDATE

There have been several questions about when park construction is to begin. We had hoped that the proposed asphalt path might have been done this summer or fall. However, with the untimely and unfortunate death of the owner of the paving company that was to donate the work and materials, as well as the dissolution of the company a few months after his passing, we are now unable to begin any work on the revitalization of Winnifred Stewart Park this summer.

Most of the work is still planned for the summer of 2015. At this point, we are unsure of what elements will be done, and which ones will be either phased out, or delayed. The budget that we applied for funding with has changed and the project now has quite a shortfall of funds.

As we move forward in conversation with our project partners and City planners, we will have a clearer picture of what can be achieved by next year.

When more information is available, an update will be provided. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
