The Citizens for Community Development have made some more
progress toward the reality of a city park. West Texas
Utilities has donated $1000 to add to the seed money and has
made a commitment of providing decorative lighting for the
park along with the in-kind work. Roland Pena, WTU Area
Business Manager, expressed their pleasure in helping in the
planning stages of the city park and stressed WTU's
commitment to help communities in their service area realize
their full economic development.
Texas Department of Transportation is considering a donation
of equipment to be used in leveling and clearing of the park
site. In addition Desert Distributors has committed to
donating the fuel necessary to clear the park site. Also the
Lynaugh Unit of the TDC in Fort Stockton will assist with
labor on the park construction pending final approval which
hopefully will be shortly after the first of the year.
