The City of Delta is applying for a Great Outdoors Colorado grant for improvements at Cleland Park. The $200,000 request would be matched by $50,000 from the city's Conservation Trust Fund.

Wilma Erven, director of parks, recreation and culture, said the city wants to make the playground ADA compliant, as well as construct an ADA trail from the playground to the parking area on 7th Street. The city also intends to enlarge the horseshoe pits from four to six, fence the horseshoe pit area and upgrade the sand volleyball court.

The playground was originally built in 1987, she noted at the Oct. 17 meeting of the Delta City Council.

The grant cycle requires the city to submit an application prior to the completion of the city's parks, recreation and open space master plan. But during the process of gathering input for the master plan, playground improvements throughout the city have emerged as a top priority.

Erven said the improvements would be one phase of probably three to bring Cleland Park where it needs to be.

In other business, council voted unanimously to issue a letter of support for the Delta County Ambulance District's mill levy increase proposal.
