N.Adams Parks Commission Asks For Changes in Brayton Park Plans
The city of North Adams hopes to begin construction on the makeover of Brayton Hill Park this summer.
IBerkshires.com reports that the Parks & Recreation Commission reviewed the plans on Monday and made a couple of recommendations that will be brought back to Berkshire Design Group.
The commission hopes to sign off on the final plans later this month. The plans include a new playground, basketball court, youth baseball field, soccer-sized multi-use field, practice wall, walking path and parking area.
Replacing the playground equipment is part of Phase 1 and is being funded through the city's 2018 Community Development Block Grant; Phase 2, the rest of the project, is being funded through a $318,500 Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities grant with a match from the city's 2019 CDBG funds. The total cost is set at $455,000.
