"Local Parks Revitalization Project"

Coudersport, 7/30/2010: Coudersport Borough Manager, Marlin "Mud" Moore and June Cornish, Parks Director, led the Coudersport Rotary Club meeting last Monday in discussion on the club’s "Local Parks Revitalization Project".

Mud and June were asked to attend the Rotary meeting in an attempt by the club to identify revitalization needs of, and possible enhancements to be made to, CARP Park and Mitchell Park, in particular.

Mud discussed several areas of concern regarding Mitchell Park in particular including several sightings of graffiti upon the pavilion, picnic tables and even the baby swings, and suggested the picnic tables and pavilion be repainted as a part of the Club’s revitalization project.

Mud also suggested that playground mulch and timber borders should be purchased and installed around the playground equipment located at Mitchell Park. June Cornish explained that the playground mulch is important because it has been shown to reduce the number and severity of injuries sustained by children playing on playgrounds. June estimated that the playground mulch would cost $3,000.00 for 100ft3 and that approximately 50 timbers would be necessary to border certain areas at a cost of $900.00.

Mud proposed that the Rotary Club also consider replacing two barbeque grills, as well as the teeter totter unit located at Mitchell Park in the event that the teeter totter was no longer covered under warranty. The teeter totter was initially purchased under a cooperative arrangement between the Coudersport Rotary Club and the Coudersport Borough Council in 2000, and was installed by Logan Abplanalp as part of his Eagle Scout project for Boy Scout Troop 536.

The Borough is currently investigating the installation of water at Mitchell Park, as well as the potential resources of funding of the project, according to Moore.

In an attempt to promote youth leadership and community pride, the Coudersport Rotary Club has selected three (3) youth leaders to represent the area's teens in the implementation of the project; including Sarah and Peter Wright, and Josh Bucheit (pictured above). The Club anticipates recruiting a total of six (6) youth leaders from the area in addition to those boy scouts wishing to incorporate certain segments of Rotary’s revitalization efforts into their Eagle Scout projects.

The Coudersport Rotary Club is scheduled to formulate an action plan and budget for its Local Parks Revitalization Project within the next two (2) weeks after the Club finishing reviewing the suggestions and recommendations received from area residents and community leaders regarding expansion/enhancement and revitalization needs of the parks.

Those wishing to financially contribute to the Local Parks Revitalization Project or desiring to participate in the planning and implementation phases of the project may call Karen Cahilly at (814) 274-9465.

Nothing in Coudy?

Are you kidding?

Coudy has a town pool, a movie theater and didn't they have a skating rink at one time? That is more than our town has, there is town ball (soccer, baseball, softball) in most small towns around here get them interested in summer sports and your kids would be busy! If your kids are not interested in playing they might enjoy going to cheer on their friends...
