Despite a minor setback a couple weeks ago due to a storm water issue, progress continues with the improvements to the pavilion in the middle of Heritage Park.

At Monday night’s CRA meeting, Williston Planner Adam Hall told CRA members that workers were laying foundation at the pavilion this week and if everything went according to plan, the project could be completed by mid-July.

Phase III of the park renovations is about 90 percent complete, the CRA learned.

Next up will be curbing, landscaping and widening sidewalks, but the CRA wants to address the next steps with the city council before any plans are finalized.

In other business Monday, the CRA agreed to a downtown block survey for the block that is bordered by Main Street, E Noble Avenue, NE 1st Avenue and NE 1st Street.

The survey, which will be done by Steve McMillen, will include parcel research to determine ownership and assessing if the buildings on the block are true  buildings or facades.

The CRA hopes to use the survey to sometime in the future approach property owners about creating a city parking area in the back of the block.
