Additional Basketball-Wrestling Parking at Middle School Gym
A former grassed and curbed area just east of the middle school gym (which was used by some for parking for years anyway) is now an official easy access asphalt parking area (at 14th near Center St.), since mid-September 2017.
Air Conditioning For Middle School Gym
Another improvement at the Middle School Gym is air conditioning units relocated after the high school renovations a few years back. Superintendent Lance West cautioned it will be "cooler" but not cold. There were also other significant improvements in the wrestling area made over the summer that I hope to get photos for later. -- Ted
Coming Soon
Snook Bayouth reports a new business will be located soon in the back of his building (near 11th and Main) where Philly's Cheesteak had been for several years until earlier this year.
City Plaza Still Forming
The "jury is still out" but I'm not impressed with early results for improved drainage at the city plaza where downpour overflow has occasionally made it's way into the Chamber/CDI office just to the west at 12th and Main in recent years.
Note 2017 Halloween activities will start at the Veterans Building with the plaza unavailable.

My Previous Coverage (CDI Awning Grant Check Presentation) for this photo actually occured after this photos was taken but I couldn't locate it quickly when that page went online. -- Ted
