PLAIN CITY -- Plans for the bowery, restrooms and storage area at Town Square Park are coming together, Councilwoman LaFray Kelley said recently.
Parks committee members changed the plan, so the restroom doors now will face the playground.
Kelley also said original plans were for two boweries with room for one table each, similar to the ones at Pioneer Park, but the committee suggested a larger bowery area that would have enough space for four tables, which would make the actual structure 10 feet smaller.
"This building would be more like the original footprint of the original building there," Kelley said.
Councilman Brett Ferrin asked if the bowery would be next to the road.
"I think it would make more sense if that was closer to the playground side of things, where people can watch their kids," he said.
Kelley said the longer sides of the building would run east and west, with the bowery on the end of that.
"The bowery would be on the side by the ball diamond, about the same spot as the old one," she said.
More than 10 feet are being taken off in the current plan, said Mayor Jay Jenkins, who suggested the building be 10 feet longer and have less storage area.
Kelley said 10 feet could be added back onto the building, and possibly one of the three storage areas could be eliminated.
"We can always do away with it," Kelley said, "but it's my feeling you can never have too much storage as our town grows."
Ferrin said the city eventually will be looking at building a public works building, where more items can be stored.
Kelley said the original plans for the building included a kitchen area, but current plans do not. She said the plans need to be complete by Dec. 31 to meet a very specific deadline to comply with grant requirements for funding.
Kelley said she would have city engineer Brad Jensen complete the plans and bring them back before the council.
