Funding for Parks and Application for Drainage

29 Aug Funding for Parks and Application for Drainage

Last week the Beaufort County Legislative Delegation approved partial funding for two important projects. The first is improvements to the recreational components of the duck pond at the corner of First Blvd and Battery Creek Road when the storm water challenge at the that intersection and beyond is addressed.  Toward that end, the City has applied for a FEMA mitigation grant to make necessary repairs to that system and to address water coming into the neighborhood from Battery Creek on high tides.

The second is for the long overdue construction of bathrooms at the Washington Street Park.  The Northwest Quadrant Neighborhood Association recommended improvements and offered sweat equity in making the improvements. The first step was for the city to construct the bathrooms.
