This summer has been a busy one for the WECRD. Construction on the 18th St. Phase II site improvements aka parking lot addition is wrapping up. The Board did a walk-through with the engineer, Wright Brothers and Sunroc. There are a few punch list items to remain but overall the Board is pleased with what they see. What’s next you ask? During the fall and winter months the Foundation and WECRD Board will be fundraising and working hard to raise those funds required to get to the next phase, building the indoor aquatic facility! If things go accordingly, construction will start Spring 2021. (If you would like to make a financial contribution please contact us!) 🙂 The other big project going on is the Union Pacific Railroad required the WECRD to install a fence at Railroad Park. We are contracted with a local company to put that fence up. Once that fence is installed the City of Mountain Home will purchase it from the WECRD and we can finally close that chapter.
The next regular scheduled board meeting is August 26th with the 2020-2021 budget hearing starting at 5:45pm followed by the regular meeting.
