Dear Friends,

Happy July!  We hope everyone is having a relaxing, fun and eventful summer!

We wanted to take a moment to provide you with a brief but exciting update to the construction of our new park.

On July 4th, at our Huntington Woods festivities, the Men’s Club presented Susan Witus and the Friends of Burton Community Park with a check for $70,000! This is $10,000 more than what was promised to us. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to the Men’s Club.

We received revised construction drawings from our playground architect last week.  New designs incorporate some strategic cost saving changes that will not affect the play space for the children. Currently, they are being reviewed and evaluated by our city civil engineers and are scheduled to be released to our 2 bidders on Wednesday. Bidders will then have 2 weeks to rebid the project and then the construction company will be selected.  Construction will begin immediately following the selection.

We want to thank you all for your patience as we work through the intricacies of this enormous project. The end result will be amazing and a priceless addition to to our community.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
