JAMESTOWN – It might be fall, but the City of Jamestown is looking towards next summer and discussing several new projects that are on the horizon.
There are 500 acres of parkland in the city and Mayor Eddie Sundquist plans to take advantage of all of it.
Specifically, he is planning to bring back the summer recreational program and includes funding in his 2022 executive budget for festivals, concerts, and events; as well as recreational sports leagues.
He also has his eyes set on developing amenities for area dogs as well.
“Under the budget we have funded a dog park at Bergman Park both for small and large dog breeds, with an agility course, shade, and water,” said Sundquist. “We’ve also funded a disc golf course at Allen Park, a new playground at Nordstrom Park, improvements to Diethrick Park, AED devices at every city park and three new laborers in our park’s department to help maintain and absorb new projects.”
Among things not included in the budget, but are on the Mayor’s radar, include improvements to Willard Street Park and the possibility of building city owned splash pads.
