Tuesday evening, citizens may comment on the design proposals for Ludington City Park. Major renovations, drafted by the firm of Manning Designs of Big Rapids, include a central fountain, added circular sidewalk, picnic shelter, upgraded restrooms, improved seating for accessibility, landscaping and decorative lighting.

Several other ideas, not included in the drawing, were mentioned, such as a splash pad, a gas fireplace, and closing Lewis Street to traffic. The City notes that it has limited funds, and not all suggestions will be feasible.

By moving existing benches, and adding new ones around the fountain, people in wheelchairs or using walkers will be better served.

Ludington City Park receives heavy use in the summer, and is the venue for several regular events including the Annual Art Fair. However, it has not been significantly upgraded for decades. Proposed changes would make it more user friendly and appealing. It is also the site of the Kiwanis Bandshell.

People wishing to participate in the meeting should come to the downstairs community room at Ludington City Hall, 400 S Harrison Street, at 6:30 pm, Tuesday, August 12.
