Officials continue to meet to come up with a plan to renovate Gene Howe Park.
They said because they are able to move some of their resources north to 15th, they hope they can have both the splash pad and the play area during the first phase of construction.
Officials are currently working on the cost estimate and finalizing the design.
“We have asked for additional funding through the CIP process, and we’ll probably know by the end of the week or early next week if we have received extra funding which would be great,” said Pat Westbrook, the Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation.
Officials told us the neighborhood has really rallied behind this project.
