Park improvements coming to Legion Lake, Brigance Park, possible splash pad in the works | Chickasaw Journal

Legion Lake Park on Dulaney Street is slated for some improvements in 2021 after the Mississippi Legislature appropriated $150,000 for park upgrades. The appropriation request was made by the Chickasaw Development Foundation (CDF) during the 2020 session.

CDF director, Sean Johnson, added the park improvements to the request after Houston won a $25,000 grant from the Levitt Foundation to hold a ten-week concert series at the park.

“We made a couple of requests for quality of life improvement projects during the last session. We requested $250,000 to refurbish the old theater downtown into a public arts space, and $150,000 for upgrading the park. Legislators Jon Lancaster and Ben Suber were able to shepherd the request through the various committees and were able to get us the money for the park,” says Johnson.

“We’ll try again for some other projects (including the theater) next year, but, considering the COVID situation and the flag situation and all that the legislature was having to deal with this year, I’m very happy that we received needed help with one of our projects. We hope to work closely with the legislature in getting state investment in Houston in the coming term.”

The improvements at the park, which features an approximately five-acre lake, will include a walking track around the lake, including a new “fishing” bridge over the east bay, solar lighting and some RV hook ups as well as trash receptacles, graded parking and other improvements. According to Johnson, the RV hook ups were a good selling point to the project due to the park’s proximity to the nearby Tanglefoot Trail.

“Our hope is to start on this project in early 2021 and have the space completed in time for the Summer Concert Series, which was postponed this year due to COVID, but is slated

Renovation planned for Merrillville dealership | Lake County News



Welcome to Merrillville



MERRILLVILLE — The town’s north end is expected to be enhanced as Shaver Preferred Motors is planning to invest more than $1 million in renovations to the dealership.

Shaver has been located at 5701 Broadway for decades, and it intends to expand into the former Levin Tire property that’s adjacent to the dealership.

“They’re really doing it to spruce up the business and make it look nice in the town and I think we should welcome it,” Town Council President Rick Bella said.

The project calls for improvements to the former tire business to convert it into an indoor showroom and sales office for the dealership. Shaver’s existing sales office is much smaller than the former Levin building, and it will be demolished.

Shaver is asking the town to grant a 10-year real estate property tax abatement for the improvements that will be completed.

The council has given initial approval of the requests and can finalize it later this month.

Town Manager Patrick Reardon said 20 jobs will be retained, and the project will create four new permanent positions.

Councilman Leonard White is supportive of the improvements, but indicated the employment opportunities being created there aren’t as large as other projects that have received tax abatement.

About 30 houses and as many cars are believed to have been destroyed in the on-going blaze after it blitzed through the Mackenzie Country village last night.

Just how the raging fire began is not yet known according to Civil Defence Minister Peni Henare.

Minister Henare says the situation is a matter of “wait and see” as to what extent the damage caused will be but there is no indication as to what may have triggered the fire.

“As of now, there is still no understanding of how the fire started at the moment. Pretty sure FENZ will be working to contain it in the first instance before looking at how it started

“Obviously at the moment, of course the focus is on saving people’s lives and saving people’s properties.” 

Two other fires have also erupted in the South Island this morning, fuelled by high winds which have fanned the flames and made them difficult to contain. 

Fire and Emergency says the Ohau fire is burning through pine forest and grass in the Mackenzie Basin, with 16 fire crews on the ground and five helicopters fighting it.

There is a mixture of shock and confusion among the more than 90 people who were evacuated from Ohau Village in the early hours of this morning. 

As a popular spot during the school holidays, many families were forced to flee their homes now needing to seek refuge inside the Twizel Events Centre.
