City Of Superior Puts Focus On Recreational Projects
Recreation will factor big in the planning and spending for the City of Superior in 2020 - on two fronts. The good news is that even with reduced funds available, a series of partnerships will bring total recreational improvements to around $1 million this year.
Already, the city has made strides in allocations towards recreational improvements. $300,000 is pledged towards a punch list of projects that include:
- Board repairs for a skating rink
- Upgrades in electric and garbage and recycling at Barkers Island Festival Park
- Added facilities at Hammond Park
- Relocation of tennis and basketball courts at Central Park
- Upgrading to 18-holes at the Disc Golf Course in the Municipal Forest
According to a story in the Superior Telegram, the city has also set aside additional funds in case they obtain a federal grant to cover upgrades to the Pokegema Landing. If that grant is obtained, the city will match up to $57,000 in funds. Additionally, the city also hopes to utilize Community Development Block Grants totaling $500,000 to make improvements to Bear Creek and Kelly Parks.
Meanwhile, Superior's Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan is on the agenda for the next City Council meeting - happening Tuesday, February 4. A vote will be taken to consider adoption of the plan.
