County officials debate park improvements

NORWICH - It’s time to “get off the dime,” City of Norwich Supervisor Linda E. Natoli told her fellow lawmakers this week during a discussion of a project that would make renovations to East and West Park in downtown Norwich.



“There are some things that I like and some I don’t, but we at least need to see the revised plan,” said the Ward 4, 5 and 6 supervisor.

Natoli’s comments followed a lengthy debate between Chenango County Agriculture, Buildings and Grounds Committee members who were for and against the now five-year old project that was initiated by a group of community volunteers. The primary discussion revolved around either approving the revised plan before committing to funding or in-kind services, or vice versa.

The full Board of Supervisors unanimously backed the Friends of the Park’s conceptual plan in 2005 and, the following year, gave the go-ahead to the City of Norwich to apply for a grant that helped afford the design phase of the originally estimated $1 million project.
