Community meeting for a new playground | The Bee – The Buzz in Bullhead City – Lake Havasu City – Kingman – Arizona – California

Bullhead City, AZ., June 30, 2022 – In another demonstration of Bullhead City’s commitment to improving the quality of life for all citizens, the Public Works Department will host a community input meeting to discuss the replacement of the field of game in the Ken Fovargue park. The meeting will be held on July 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Recreation Division offices located at 2285 Trane Road.

Bullhead City Council has budgeted for 19 parks projects, valued at over $7.1 million in the 2022-23 Capital Improvement Plan. These include everything from park restrooms to UTV trails, with a view to including something for all age groups. The replacement of playground structures in Ken Fovargue Park was recognized as a need during the budget process and Director of Public Works Angie Johnson is moving quickly to make it happen.

Johnson has appointed Parks Superintendent Dave Heath to oversee the work, and it is starting with community input.

“After 30 years, it was time to update the playground in this park, and we’ve had tremendous success in our parks, thanks to this community,” Heath said. “When we ask them for their opinion, they give it and that’s always valuable.”

More recently, feedback from residents was solicited for the addition of a new playground in the community park. The vision of those who attended Suddenlink Community Center meetings, Parks and Recreation Commission meetings and City Council meetings brought to light a plan that will soon become a reality when the playground is built this fall.

“It’s just an exciting time to be at Bullhead City,” Heath said. “Our City Council, Mayor, City Manager and Director of Public Works all have a real talent for finding out what our community members want and giving it to them. »

The main point on the agenda of the meeting will be to select a design for the playground. Heath said all are welcome to attend the meeting at the recreation offices and anyone who cannot attend can provide feedback to him via email at [email protected] or by calling 928-715-4979.
