Topsail Beach officials keep eyes on getting park funds

Published: Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 16:50 PM.

The town has received a $20,000 donation for playground equipment.

If Topsail receives a grant, the first phase of the proposed park will be complete within three years.

The second phase of the proposed park includes developing shelters, walking paths, and parking facilities. Construction of these amenities will cost an estimated $66,500.

Depending upon funding, game courts such as a volleyball court and a basketball court, would follow, completing the final phase. The estimated cost to build these amenities is $44,500.

Commissioners will hold a public hearing next month to discuss approving the proposed master plan, which will include estimated costs to maintain and operate the proposed park.

“This is something I think the townspeople are pretty much against,” Commissioner Julian Bone said.

He voted against buying the property.
