Various projects are scheduled in the city of Prairie du Chien this summer. One that is currently underway is the new shelter at Cecil Smith Park.
The Prairie du Chien Independent Little League is raising funds to contribute to the construction of the new multi-use shelter, which is a joint effort between the city and the Independent Little League.
Construction has begun and the concrete foundation has been completed. Also, water and sewer has been extended to the site.
“It’s a long overdue project,” said City Administrator Aaron Kramer.
The shelter will contain a new upgraded, compliant and centrally located restroom and a new concession stand with improved security and storage, while also providing better service for patrons, shade on sunny days and shelter during inclement weather.
