NEXT STEPS - PARK IMPROVEMENTS
Now that the plan has been adopted by City Council and approved by the DNR, the next step is to commit funding toward the implementation of projects listed in the Plan and apply for grants. Funding for park projects has been recommended in the City’s six-year Capital Improvement Program. The draft CIP will be presented to the Planning Commission at their meeting on Tuesday, September 15 and a recommendation will be made to City Council for consideration at their meeting on Monday, September 28. The draft CIP will be recommended to City Council for adoption and incorporated into the final City Budget which will include operation, maintenance, and the CIP.

LAYLIN PARK UPDATE
Several improvements have been recently completed in Laylin Park, guided by community input. We are down to two remaining items:
Pavilion - After careful study, we have determined that the cost for repairs to the existing pavilion will exceed the cost of replacement. We are looking for community input on this important decision – continue to invest in the existing structure or demolish and replace?
Walking Path - We have determined three options for the new walking path in Laylin Park: 6-foot wide asphalt, 6-foot wide concrete, or 8-foot wide asphalt?
