MABTON -- Residents here are getting a new park and the nonprofit developers want them to have a say in its appearance.
Catholic Charities Housing Services plans to build a park on 11/2 acres near the organization's New Life Villa apartments and homes.
Architects will share proposed designs, which may include pathways, picnic shelters, basketball courts, playground equipment and other amenities, at a public meeting at 6 p.m. today at the apartments, 708 Washington St.
The meeting is the second of three. On Jan. 24, also at 6 p.m. in the apartments, residents will meet to finalize plans.
The property is owned by Catholic Charities Housing and the organization is using grant money, including $15,000 from the Yakima Valley Community Foundation.
Designs are by the Pomegranate Center, an Issaquah nonprofit that develops and supports parks and other community gathering places.
The park likely will be built in phases as funds allow, said Laura Armstrong, a program assistant with Catholic Charities Housing.
