Downtown Amundsen Park is slated for some upgrades, so Claresholm town council has created an ad hoc, or temporary committee to look at re-design options.
At its Nov. 13 meeting, council reviewed a report from administration stating that, as part of the 2019 budget discussions, the re-design of Amundsen Park was brought forward as a project.
One playground is slated for upgrades and re-development in 2019, but the location of any new playground equipment or additional features requires determination.
The Facility and Infrastructure Planning Committee had a meeting on Oct. 29 where they said it would be beneficial to include interested organizations within the community for ideas and input.
Council then agreed to strike an ad-hoc committee for the re-design concept plan of Amundsen Park and appoint Mayor Doug MacPherson and Councillor Mike Cutler to represent council as members of the committee.
