After a few concerns over the project were raised at a recent park board meeting, Ohl attended a block party this weekend for neighbors who live in the vicinity of the park and the sledding hill’s proposed location.
Ohl gave a detailed description of plans for lights, parking, and other aspects of the project.
The new sledding hill will not disturb existing trails, an lights will not disturb neighbors and will be shut off fairly early in the evening. Watch the video, below, for Ohl’s presentation.
Ohl is still raising money at this time but has the approval of the park board and the blessing of the Gerk family of Mason City who have been supporters of trees and prairie areas in the park.
