There is no early time for a weekend session

Flora Perkins-Broadnax πŸ’ͺ🏾

Carbondale, you showed up and spoke out! πŸ—£ We’re loving it!

➑Several dozen of you came to a parks planning meeting this week and let us know how we can serve you better. Right now, we are working with a consulting group to survey the community about upgrades they want to see to parks and new facilities they hope to see built.

People are talking about the importance of repairing playground equipment that is aging, offering more facilities for teenagers, and providing more trash cans at parks.

What more do you want to see?
