Looks like the 11th and Monroe Street Park reconstruction will finally get underway. The park has had issues with drunk people hanging around and harassing parkgoers and also lead contamination, and the new designs are supposed to make it more family- and kid-friendly. Here's a note form the city:
More specifically, we are finishing construction documents and have begun the permitting process. At this point, we expect construction to begin by mid-June.
We plan on hosting a community meeting prior to the start of construction to review the final plan as well as the construction schedule...Here's the design. What do you think?
