Capital Improvements in Johnson City
Johnson City commissioners, administrators, department heads, planners, staff members and architects participated in a three-hour meeting dealing with money available for capital improvements. Three ideas are being considered concerning the Memorial Park campus and the Cardinal Park and Freedom Hall Civic Center. Now that this issue has become one of the cityís top priorities they awarded a nearly a 1 and a half million dollar contract Thursday to Johnson Cityís C&T Construction company. They will begin with the Memorial Park Community Centerís Main Street component. Commissioners have been reviewing plans from local architect Tony Street to enhance the Memorial Park campus and create a plaza to honor veterans. The construction plan includes an amphitheater accessible from the plaza, lots of green space and wrought iron fencing and concrete walkways to lead visitors around the park. They want this component to compliment the new 67-thousand square foot community center expected to open in July. (bg)
