The Neosho Parks, Recreation and Golf Course Board is scheduled to discuss the renovation of stairs at Big Spring Park, as well as the city's ongoing parks needs assessment at their meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. today at the Lampo Building, 500 E. Spring St.
Troy Royer, Neosho city manager, informed city council members on Tuesday, Nov. 6 that the Neosho Area Community Foundation had expressed interest in contributing to the stairs project.
According to information provided to the Parks, Recreation and Golf Course board, local resident Tim Booyer has also volunteered labor to help repair the handrail on the Big Spring Park staircase.
The City of Neosho is now asking the Parks, Recreation and Golf Course board to consider overseeing the project.
The board members also plan to discuss the parks needs study, being performed by Land3 Studio of Kansas City, which is intended to find out what Neosho is missing in its parks.
The board members also plan to review the city's golf and parks fees.
As this is the third meeting of the board since the parks and recreation committee and the golf course board merged, the group will also review and complete their mission and goals statement.
