The City of Cortez is seeking public comment on the incoming community park at 7th and Oak streets.
The park will stand at the site of old Montezuma-Cortez High School after a lengthy discussion on what to do with the vacated land. Three open houses are to be held from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day with a different focus:
August 13 at Evangel Assembly of God — Suggestions for what should be included in the new park, as well as park names.
September 18 at the new park’s site (7th and Oak streets) — Review park designs and choose favorites.
October 10 at the new park’s site — Review the park’s final design and recommend a name.
The city encourages those interested to attend all three meetings to be involved in the full public decision process. An online survey collecting input will double submissions as entries for a $100 gift card.
