The Columbia Adair County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announcethat the new Playground equipment at the Roadside Park on South KY 55, one mile south of the KY 55/KY 704 Y, is now complete.
The Chamber obtained the new equipment with grant money that was obtained after application through the Lake Cumberland Area Development District from Land and Water Conservation Funds.
Cellular One also contributed $10,000.
That money amounted to some $9,600.00 and was announced last summer at the park. Also used to obtain the playground equipment was $10,000.00 that was obtained from a grant from Cellular One.
This money was part of $1,000,000. that Cellular One had available nationwide for community improvement projects.
The Chamber of Commerce applied for the the maximum amount of $10,000.00 and received that amount. The City of Columbia employees spent about two weeks installing theequipment for the Chamber.Donations from J Downey & Son and KY Tie and Lumber for mulchwere obtained. Also donating was Gaddie Shamrock for grader work for site preparation. G & G Tractors provided a tractor for use in the installation job. The Chamber plans to place two benches and a sign about the equipment in the next few days.
