Saint Clair Play Area Renovation

Overview

The existing Saint Clair Play Area was constructed in 1983. The existing play equipment is inaccessible to those with disabilities, violates existing safety requirements and uninviting to the community. Funds were received through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the construction of a new play area as well as other site improvements including walkways surround the building and associated benches and landscaping. The first Design Advisory Meeting was held October 13, 2009. At this meeting, there was a presentation of existing conditions and site analysis of the site, goals and objectives were established, and a list of Needs and Wants was developed. These plans are available for viewing by clicking on the link listed under Meeting #1.
