The city of Dexter will soon have a new playground, and it will be located at the corner of Ann Arbor and Edison Streets where there is currently a field.
That’s thanks to the Dexter Board of Education, which approved (6-0 Darr absent) selling the easement, which the school district owned, to the City of Dexter at a cost of one dollar.
Justin Breyer, assistant to the City Manager of Dexter, thanked the board and said, “We’ll probably do the building in late spring (2016) and we hope to have a community build day.”
Julie Schumaker, Vice President of the BOE, asked at the October 12 board meeting if there could be handicapped accessible equipment on the playground.
Breyer told the board at the October 26 meeting that there will be handicapped accessible equipment purchased and that the playground will be wheelchair accessible.
The City of Dexter is responsible to invest in the playground equipment and any related recreational equipment that is installed on the playground.
The City is also responsible for the maintenance, repair and replacement of the equipment on the playground area.
