Park Infrastructure Replace/Maintenance

The Master Plan recommends maintenance and upgrades at several parks throughout the city.

There is also a need to fund existing projects with unforeseen expenses from time to time.

Community Trail Phase IV-B

The city received grant funding from the state to construct the Community Trail in 2000. Since that time, two extensions have been planned. Phase IV, is the second of those extensions. This portion of the trail will connect from Bellamy Park through two multi-family projects to Knox Marsh Road.

Once completed, the Community Trail will stretch from Knox Marsh Road in the south to Watson Road in the north and contain both rural and urban portions. This project will improve the walkability for numerous neighborhoods and apartment complexes.

Cost: $131,000
