Walnut Ridge’s park committee is seeking input on priorities for improvements at Stewart Park through the city’s Facebook page.

According to the post, the Park Committee and Mayor Charles Snapp have been working on new improvement ideas for the park, which were presented during the August city council meeting.

During that meeting, council members authorized the mayor to apply for a grant to help alleviate some of the costs, but since funding is not guaranteed, individuals are being asked to help prioritize the recommended improvements.

“It is possible that we will not receive anything from the state, which would mean that only some of these improvements could happen anytime soon,” the Facebook post states.

Improvements have been divided into seven different categories and can be ranked from one through seven.

“When you look at the opportunities presented below, please rank the areas according to importance to you,” the post states. “When you rank them, be sure to let us know where you’re from and then your ranking.”

Additionally, individuals are encouraged to submit additional ideas or suggestions to City Hall.
