Residents grateful for park improvements

by: Robin Roy City Editor

The Coalition of City Neighborhood Associations likes the way Selby Five Points Park looks these days, and its members wanted to show their appreciation.

The CCNA presented a letter of thanks to the Downtown Improvement District, which spearheaded improvements in the park.

The letter read:

“Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is to express our appreciation for the time, money and efforts spent in improving our city park, Selby Five Points Park. It’s beautiful and a wonderful improvement to life in our downtown.”

Representatives of 18 city neighborhoods signed the letter.

The DID conducted a complete makeover of the downtown park, with new landscaping, sod, sculptures, brick walkway, performance stage and computerized lighting system in the trees.
