Kelly Park in Superior's North End is about to get a makeover with the help of the Community Development Block Grant dollars.
The 2.4-acre neighborhood park in the 700 block between Grand and Baxter avenues will feature new play equipment and surfacing, as well as improvements to grounds and the sign.
The Superior City Council approved Tuesday, Sept. 3, entering into an agreement with Midstates Recreation LLC for $75,000 for the playground design, equipment, surfacing and installation.
Plans are expected to be finalized by mid-September with the play equipment to be installed by the end of October to meet the terms of the grant.
“I like it,” Councilor Esther Dalbec said of renderings submitted with the company’s proposal. “I even like the color.”
However, colors and the exact pieces of equipment that will be used in the renovation are among the items that will be finalized later this month, said Linda Cadotte, parks, recreation and forestry director.
Only half the grant received will be used to pay for the equipment.
The remaining $75,000 will be used to resurface the basketball court, paths and sidewalks, plant apple trees and install a new park sign.
