Havelock to seek grant for Lewis Farm Road park project

Commissioner George Liner said he felt the park could be used in a way that was compatible to both horse riders and the youth sports advocates.

"We want to be good neighbors. There are avenues for both of us. I think we need to move forward. I think we can co-exist," Liner said.

He added that development of the property would not be likely for 18 to 24 months, and in the interim, the land could be leased

Commissioner Will Lewis said no other property could be found in the area at such a bargain but said it would not solve the entire problem of needed space for recreation on the west end of the city.

"For $75,000, there’s no where else you’re going to be able to find to solve today’s problems," he said.

Commissioner Karen Lewis called the property a great deal.

"Even if we never put anything else on it, we should apply for the PARTF," she said.
