Hollis group aims to start work on new playground
During Monday night's Board of Selectmen meeting, project spokeswoman Anna Birch shared the latest updates on the project's progress.
Birch said the area is definitely in need of an upgrade since it is frequented by citizens of all ages.
"It sounds like a great plan," Selectmen Chairman David Petry said.
The 30-by-30 foot site is one of few areas along Nichols Field that would accommodate a playground, Birch said, as the town fields are dominated by athletic events and the annual Old Home Days festivities.
As it stands now, the plan is to raise funds privately for the bulk of both projects, rather than use taxpayer monies. Ultimately, members of the Hollis Playground Project hope to raise somewhere between $30,000 to $40,000.
Selectmen Vahrij Manoukian encouraged members of the Hollis Playground Project to attend an upcoming Rotary Club meeting.
