EXCERPTS FROM THE AUGUST 9 MEETING ( CLICK FOR THE FULL MINUTES )
CITY PARK: The only thing we are waiting for to complete this year’s project is for Odebolt Tree Service to trim trees. This needs to be done by the 1st of October. Next year’s park project will include adding some seating around the playground area, adding another picnic area to the north of the enclosed shelter house, extending the enclosed shelter house and preserving the entrance pillars. Deb is putting the finishing details for the REAP grant for this project.
RURAL LEGACY PROJECT: Madeline stated the Rural Legacy is planning on beginning their project in late August.
PETERSON PIONEER HOUSE
The Questors had a good discussion about what needs to be done to preserve this house and they think that moving it down to 2nd Street would be a good idea. They asked if the OBC would help them to move it to this location. After the move they will take care of repairs and the tours. Discussion was held and it was decided in order to have both buildings look nice they should each be facing 2nd Street, with the School House set correctly to accent the Greenspace Park. Mayor Rex has talked to the movers and they will come sometime this week to see if the house is structurally sound to move. The Questors asked if the present lot of the Pioneer Home would be sold if this money would come to the Pioneer Home Project.
Next meeting will be held Sept 13 at 6:00 at the Downtown Café.
