The following is a news release from the City of Lake Charles:
The web page also has a link with instructions on how to volunteer. E-mails will be sent out with additional details on volunteering as planning efforts continue.
Clearing of the park continues with completion scheduled for next week. This project will prepare the site for the building of the new park and the proposed improvements. The City appreciates the support of the following companies with regard to the clean-up of the park: Areno Construction, LLC; Acme Brick; Tye-Co Dirt Contracting; Waste Management; Legends Development, and Southern Solid Waste.
Due to the extensive damage the park received and the difficulties that would be faced in attempting to restore it to its original state, Mayor Roach and the rebuild committee have recommended to the City Council that Millennium Park be rebuilt as a newly designed park. A final design recommendation will be made to the City Council at the April 6 City Council Meeting.
