2018 Park Improvements




Porter Park | permanent restroom


July 12: The restroom is open!  The contractor has some minor details to complete and may need to "shut the doors" for an hour or two during the mornings intermittently over the next few weeks.  The porta-potty will be left in place until these are completed.  We look forward to removing the portable soon!

June 28: Heavy rains last Friday delayed the painters and the grading crew. This week the crew has worked toward completion.  Just in time for 4th of July, the restroom will be open.

June 21: The weather has not helped our schedule; however we anticipate the restroom being opened late next week. The contractor has installed a new bottle filler water fountain with a doggie bowl and it is ready for use!  

June 4:  Even without the cooperation of mother nature this spring, we anticipate being very close to the mid June completion.  Recently the construction fence was removed and the site has been rough graded.  Final grading and seeding along with siding and roofing of the restroom will be next on the schedule. 

May 29: Due to recent rains, the fence will be removed Thursday morning.  Thank your for your patience. 

May 24: Crews will remove the fence next Tuesday (May 28) in the soccer field area.  Construction continues on the restroom and we anticipate a mid June completion. 

April 30 2019: Work is progressing with the framing of the structure.  Sod scheduled as weather permits. 

April 18 2019: Construction crews are now connected to sanitary sewer and will be sodding the soccer field.  The pad for the building has been poured and the framing crews are on site to begin the construction of the building. 

April 1 2019: Construction crews have worked through the intermittent weather the past few weeks to get the pad ready for footings.  

March 2019:  The restroom was bid in conjunction with Wassmer Park and construction activities will start the week of March 20th.
