CITIZEN OPINION: Ames Wants Resident Input
Ames wants to know, what do citizens want to do with Roosevelt Park?
The Ames Parks and Recreation department is hosting a public meeting Monday where people can put in their input and ideas on the park site.
Traditionally, the area has been a gathering place in the neighborhood for children and families while the former playground area is often used for outdoor music, according to Parks and Recreation Director Keith Abraham.
The proposed site covers 1.3 acres at the corner of Ninth and Roosevelt streets. The former Roosevelt School building is being converted to residential units by a private developer while the former playground area has been given to the city for parkland.
The input session starts at 7:00 p.m. on August 19th at City Hall in Ames.
