The Davies Street Park as it stands today. The city is looking to finish the project

City of Nelson set to complete work on Davies Street Park

While much work has been done at the Davies Street Park in Fairview, the city is calling a public meeting to gather input.

While much work has been done at the Davies Street Park in Fairview, the city is calling a public meeting to gather input on how to finish the job.

“The meeting is to discuss the priorities for improvements to the existing space with the monies remaining for the development of the park,” said the city’s manager of development services and sustainability Dave Wahn. “We would like to have all residents of the city who have an interest in Davies Street Park in attendance.”

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday starting at 7 p.m. at the park which is located at the top of Davies Street.

Originally the park was to occupy the entire area set aside for public greenspace. But facing tight budgets, city council decided to sell off seven lots along Ninth Street in order to help develop the empty space.

The original landscape plan has been updated. There is still $250,000-plus worth of work to be done, but the city only has $120,000 left of funding. They hope the public meeting will help set a course of priorities for how the money is to be used.
