On March 30, 2015, Parks requested $85,000 of Community Development Block Grant Funding to be matched by $10,000 of in-kind support to fund a restroom /changing room at Carl Young Park.
The Spray Park will be funded with $200,000.00 of General Obligation Bonds and up to an additional $100,000 of various funds. The inclusion of a restroom facility is necessary to allow patrons an area to change clothes.
A December 19, 2016 public meeting was held at MLK Jr. Rec Center for feedback and revisions to the Spray Park, restrooms, mechanical, electrical and plumbing submittals, as well as updates to the application for a Minor Plat. As of spring 2017, design is currently in revision.
