Public Hearing Tonight on Future of Culver Town Park

The future of Culver’s town park will soon be decided, aided by the input gathered from town residents during tonight’s public hearing on the matter. Town officials have scheduled a public hearing at 6 p.m. ET at the train depot at 615 E. Lake Shore Drive. The park has been at the center of considerable controversy following the firing of the superintendent and activities director, and there has also been a considerable amount of debate regarding the makeup of the park board and whether or not a seventh member should be added.

A news release from the town states that citizens will be given an opportunity to speak, but time will be limited to ensure all have a chance to be heard. Anyone who wishes to address the council will need to sign up on a “request to speak” sheet prior to the start of that meeting. All speakers will address the board from the podium and will be required to state their name and address before speaking, as an official transcript of the meeting is being made. All speakers are asked to address the council only, and audience members are asked to be respectful of all in attendance. The council reserves the right to ask anyone who does not follow the rules to leave.
