King Street Memorial Park news...
We held a citizen engagement session on October 26, at 4pm. Many abutters attended, some voiced some concern for shields on field lighting to avoid light spill, drainage for parking lot at flagpole, concern about adding additional pickleball courts and some wanted a walking path around the perimeter.
