Updates on Community Improvements:

🚧 𝐓𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐂𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐀𝐥𝐥 𝐋𝐚𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐤 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬

We have an important update regarding Lafitte Park: 𝐀𝐥𝐥 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐤, 𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐥𝐮𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐥, 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐜𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞.

This closure is necessary to allow for the newly seeded grass on the freshly completed bank work to take root. Adequate grass coverage will help stabilize the bank and ensure the longevity of the park.

We apologize for the inconvenience but ask for your patience and cooperation during this closure. Rest assured, we are working diligently to complete the necessary tasks to reopen the park as soon as possible. We understand the excitement and anticipation of the brand-new fishing pier and enhanced accessibility features for those with mobility challenges.

We are anticipating the park opens at the end of this month. Stay tuned for further updates on the progress and reopening of Lafitte Park, including details about the upcoming ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion. We look forward to sharing the newly improved park with you very soon!

Thank you for your understanding as we strive to enhance and maintain our community spaces for everyone’s enjoyment.
