The 6 p.m. ZOOM meeting will allow for comment on the planned $500,000 in upgrades which now include construction of a recreation and youth center next year. 

Mayor Richard David announced plans to improve the park in the 2019 State of the City Address. 

The proposal is calling for upgrading old and underused space at the park and add new features for children between the ages of 12 and 16. 

The addition of a new recreation and youth center was made last month.
