Voters OK ‘North Park’ ballot measure

NEW CASTLE – Voters overwhelmingly approved allowing the town to borrow $810,000 to develop the “North Park” in the Castle Valley Ranch subdivision.Unofficial results in Tuesday night’s municipal election showed the ballot measure approved 424 to 131.The money will not mean any additional taxes to residents and will allow the town to develop the 10-acre parcel of raw land adjacent to Kathryn Senor Elementary School. The funds will be used to create a multi-use facility with fields for soccer and baseball, a trail system and future amenities and improvements, including basketball and tennis courts and an amphitheater.”I’m very happy that the citizens have supported this initiative,” said outgoing Mayor Bill Wentzel. “The community has been dying to build a major park to allow for recreation in our growing community. This will finally allow that dream to become a reality.”
