Quality of life is one of the three pillars that City Council and staff focus on for the residents of Taylor. With that, recreational opportunities are a priority, and I am happy to report that two projects are moving ahead.
The splashpad at Robinson Park is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The contract was awarded in April to TF Harper, and in August, City Council received an update on the $250,000 project, which is partially funded with a $125,000 grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife. New fencing for the softball field came in at a cost of $16,000 under budget, with renovation completed in September.
In downtown, Heritage Square Park renovation is also moving forward, with construction set to begin in November. The $3.1 million project is expected to take approximately seven months to complete. Funds come from a combination of a Texas Parks and Wildlife grant and Certificates of Obligation bonds.
These projects are being Taylor Made for citizens and visitors alike!
