Public Comments Invited on New Sheldon Park

Date posted - January 8, 2012

Sheldon area residents who are interested in the creation of a new community park at the borrow pit south of the Sheldon Crossing area will have another opportunity to offer their input Monday evening January 9th.

At that time, Mike Bell of RDG planning will present what he calls a preliminary master plan for the park. The plan will incorporate many of the amenities suggested by those who attended earlier meetings.

Those amenities include a lodge, shelters, fishing areas, a trail network, open green space, camping and habitat restoration to name a few. The earlier discussions also included an area for housing development and the need for two entrances into the area.

The meeting which is open to everyone will be held Monday at 6 p.m. in the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
