City park plans shaping up

It has long been a part of the city's Vision Plan, but somehow a city park on property the city owns across from the Trailhead/Old Depot Park has been a No. 1 goal.

Until now.

In a series of meetings held last year as part of the Competitive Partnership with the state Department of Economic Opportunity, city residents said they still wanted a park, a place where they could hold festivals, have a farmers market, and a stage for concerts and other activities. And they said they would like a place for children to enjoy the park.
