SYMMES TOWNSHIP (FOX19)- Symmes Township trustees approve construction contracts for a new park on the Rozzi property.
The park will include baseball and soccer fields, a veterans' memorial wall, bus drop-off, two dry playgrounds, walking paths and two restroom facilities and a shelter.
The over $3.2 Million project will be paid for by the fund to support the Rozzi property and some from the general fund or township park fund.
Symmes Township residents passed a 1-mill, three-year replacement park levy in November 2009 that brings in $650,000 annually.
The restrooms, shelters and blacktop work could be finished by Thanksgiving. The Rozzi property will be used for both parking and a bus drop-off site for the Cincinnati Flower Show at the adjacent Symmes Park.
All of the site work, foundations and road work will be complete in time for the event next April.
