PUBLIC NOTICE – City of Dayton, Kentucky: Opportunity for Public Review of Environmental Assessment Mary Ingles Park Conversion
The City of Dayton, KY is proposing to convert roughly 6.033 acres of Mary Ingles Park and replace it with 4.1 acres located along Dayton Pike between 706 Boone St. and 110 Dayton Pike to be known as Jamestown Park. This conversion would transfer the federal requirements from Mary Ingles Park to Jamestown Park to become a park in perpetuity.
An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to help evaluate the environmental consequences of the proposed action on the human environment and allow the affected public to understand the context for the proposed action. Public review of the Environmental Assessment is available for public comment period ending on July 7, 2017 and can be viewed online at daytonky.com or at City Hall, 514 Sixth Avenue.
Mary Ingles Park (conversion site) is a park located in the Manhattan Harbour Development footprint, east of Berry Street and west of the Manhattan Harbour Marina. The site formally included a running track, ball fields, a boat ramp, and a playground. The purpose of the proposed conversion is to allow for greater and enhanced usage, since the current site is located within the floodplain.
Jamestown Park (replacement site) is located west of Dayton Pike between 706 Boone St. and 110 Dayton Pike. The open space area will soon have a paved parking lot for patrons and a walking and biking path for enjoyment. The park is located out of the floodplain so it can be open to the public 365 days a year.
To provide written comments, please submit them to the City Administrator at 514 Sixth Avenue Dayton, KY 41074.
