Vil­lage lead­ers in Hol­gate are look­ing into the pos­si­bil­ity of expand­ing and improv­ing the park at Holgate’s for­mer school site.

Ear­lier in the month, plans to replace two dugouts at the park were put on hold so vil­lage offi­cials could take a look at the pos­si­bil­ity of a larger-scale ren­o­va­tion to the area.

At a meet­ing last night, coun­cil was pre­sented with a sketch detail­ing one pos­si­ble option.

The sketch fea­tured three base­ball dia­monds, a centrally-located concession/restroom/storage facil­ity, and bas­ket­ball courts, as well as open-air shel­ter houses and addi­tional park­ing.

Cur­rently the site houses one ball field and a restroom build­ing.

Vil­lage lead­ers hope to pur­sue grant fund­ing, as well as dona­tions of both money and labor, in an effort to com­plete the project.

A meet­ing has been sched­uled to take place July 16 at the vil­lage offices, in which coun­cil will seek com­mu­nity input on the project.
