The city council has deferred taking action on placing a splash pad at Cook park on the city’s westside.
Results of 127 neighborhood surveys taken by the parks board and Westside coalition showed a splash pad was the most popular improvement suggested.
But many others including Jessica Monell, who lives on Isabella street, say other improvements should take priority:
OC……..water fountain. ;08
Other surveys listed basketball and futsal courts as priorities.
To build a splash pad would first require a bidding process, so it wouldn’t be finished until the next fiscal year.
Mayor Bob Scott says he’d rather see new courts installed first and moved to defer the item:
OC……momentum then. 21
The council voted to defer the decision until July 17th.
