Village of Sherman Preparing Future Park Plans
Residents of Sherman can expect a big change in the coming months.
A plan has been approved to use 10 acres of land, to create a municipal park complex for the community.
The site will include a pond, a municipal building, playground system, and a 10-foot wide biking and walking trail which will encompass the 35-acre perimeter.
Planners also hope to add an amphitheater... Which Mayor Trevor Clatfelter says will hopefully ignite community involvement.
"There's going to be a smaller venue-type amphitheater that should house and seat 1,000 to 1,100 individuals for movies in the park school plays, outdoor festivals, bands, things along those lines that will generate community involvement... Individuals getting out and meeting their neighbors and things along those lines," said Clatfelter.
The mayor says that construction to build the bike path will begin at the end of this month.
They hope to have the entire project completed by the end of 2015.
