New Albany, Ohio Makes Plans for New Park in the City

New Albany parkLikely to the delight of all of our young families living here, there may be a new park coming to the New Albany Ohio area.

According to a recent article I read, New Albany Mayor Nancy Ferguson has publicly said that she wants the city to consider adding a park at the northeast corner of Main and High streets.

Evidently, the New Albany Company donated the land where the new park would go in 2007.

New Albany Co. is one of the area’s largest developers.

The city owns three parcels in that corner of the city and developed a veteran’s memorial there back in 2009.

Although the city had plans to developer passive park space with seating there around that same time, the economic downturn put the brakes on that plan.

Then, in 2012, the city council made moves to start planning the park again – but such preparations would have cost $7,500 and nothing ever happened.

Now the mayor is pushing for the city to move forward with plans for the park.

Meanwhile, the city is bringing several more improvements to the immediate area, including new street lights and sidewalks, brick curbs approved by the Americans With Disabilities Act, a new turning lane and on-street parking.

All of those improvements are expected to cost the city $1.8 million.

We’ll keep you posted on any new developments with this proposed park on the Northeast corner of Main and High Streets. It really would be a great addition to our city!
