Decatur to consider 2 city parks

Building a new city park and renovating another are on the Decatur City Council’s agenda for March 19.

Michelle Jordan, director of Community Development and Planning departments, has asked the city to accept a $155,566 federal grant to build Railroad Park next to the Turner-Surles Center in Northwest Decatur.

“It will have benches and a water feature and landscaping,” she said. “It’s going to be beautiful.”

Decatur’s Beautification Board has asked council approval to allocate its $20,000 budget on the continued renovation of a downtown park on Second Avenue Southeast.

Renovations include repairing a water fountain, replacing water lines and electrical service, landscaping, irrigation, benches and security lighting.

The board is also considering wrought-iron fencing to protect renovations after-hours.
