New East End Park is Almost Reality

More noticeable progress is coming on the East End Park. The Charleston Urban Renewal Authority announced this week that contracts between the city and the contractor have been finalized, and with all the paperwork behind the, crews can start putting shovels to the ground...likely by the week after next. It's a park project that will go up on Nancy and Dixie streets on the East End, and the Daily Mail says the Charleston Urban Renewal Authority has earmarked $260,000 for the project. Federal block grant funds administered by the city will help pay for the rest.
