Mayor’s Message for March 2023
As the weather hopefully begins to warm, I wish to provide some updates on the projects that are planned and being discussed. Starting with the skate park construction. This should begin in the next month or two with an anticipated completion date in August. Probably near the end. Bids have gone out and the process is moving along. Keep your boards ready for action later this summer. The pool remodel continues to be with the architect who is working on the plans for construction. Once these are done and approved, they will be placed for bid. It is anticipated that the exterior and inside construction will be completed in mid-2024. A new roundabout will begin construction in the next month at the intersection of 244th and 448th (Roosevelt). This intersection has been designated as a failed intersection and the roundabout should greatly improve the traffic flow in this area. Be aware that once construction begins interruption on these two roads will become a challenge for traffic. Begin to plan alternate routes now. The new community center continues to be discussed with the city council. Between the design of the building and how to finance, possibly with a bond initiative, final decisions will hopefully be in the coming months how council would like to move forward on this project. Also, those citizens that have an interest in joining the Community Center Citizen Advocacy Committee can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact information.
