Bench Replacement

Funding Fiscal Year: 2010
Project Number: C00413
Project Budget: $5,000
Funding Source: Annual Parks – Park Sales Tax
Year Completed: 2010

Project Description: This is the second funding year for a bench replacement program. Donated benches from the Memorial/Heritage Bench Program have been placed along the trails and in the parks. Some benches date back to 1995 and are in need of replacement. The replacement benches are made with environmentally-friendly recycled plastic lumber and have zinc plaques. The older wooden benches would periodically need to be re-painted and rotten wooden boards replaced. The new benches are more maintenance friendly, as they do not require re-painting, and the recycle-lumber boards do not deteriorate as with wood.
Project Status: Project completed for FY 2010. Seven old Memorial/Heritage benches were replaced with new recycled-material benches at Battle Garden.
