Fowler playground plans sent to New York State for approval
by Rachel Hunter
The final draft of the proposed Town of Fowler playground has been sent to New York State for approval, according to Town of Fowler Deputy Supervisor Rick Newvine.
Copies of the plans were passed around at the Feb. 7 meeting of the Town of Fowler board.
The playground has a capacity of 70 persons, and is designed for youth (ages 2-12). The use zone is 67’x62’ with an area of 4,158 sq. feet and a perimeter of 258 feet. The equipment manufacturer is Playworld, and the sales representative is R.E. Woodson Inc. of Rochester, N.Y.
The listed playground equipment includes two pre-designed playgrounds (one for children two to five years of age, and one for children five to 12 years of age), a spinner, a heavy-duty swing set with four belt seats, and an accessible swing seat.
Colors are yet to be determined.
The playground will be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant, and will include a wheelchair ramp entrance.
The total estimated cost to purchase all materials is $48,742.
Deputy Supervisor Newvine said it is expected to meet the requirements of the $50,000 grant made available to the Town of Fowler from New York State through Senator Patty Ritchie’s office.
The playground project's administrative committee consists of Town Clerk Kelly Harmer, Councilwoman Karen Simmons and Councilman Rick Newvine. Debra Tupper was appointed to the playground committee in January.
The next meeting of the Town of Fowler board is to be held on March 7 at 7 p.m. at the Fowler Town Hall.
