Look for new basketball goals and scoreboards at Columbia’s Douglass Park on Providence.
Columbia’s city council has voted to accept a $50,000 donation from the Veterans United Foundation to fund the project, which will also include construction of a small shelter near the courts and court refinishing and painting. The current court and goals are aging.
Columbia Parks and Recreation says the city is adding $225,000 in voter-approved capital improvement park sales tax dollars.
Staff expects the project to be done by October, weather permitting.
