Proposed Inclusive Playground Concept presented to the city council earlier.

The Salem City Council had no problem with entering into an agreement with Unlimited Play to assist with planning and fundraising for an inclusive playground in Bryan Memorial Park.

However, they have some questions about the wording of the contract that the city hopes to get an answer in time for approval at the next council meeting.

The $10,000 cost would be paid through fundraising activity for the playground.

Committee chair Shelli McIntosh says the group has helped other organizations with similar projects and is familiar with what equipment should be included, cost, and fundraising ideas. She hopes to hold a kick off to raise the money needed for the playground equipment on April 15th.

The project is being spearheaded by the Lion's Club.

In other action, the council approved the sale of a small area of the former Armory property on North College to a neighboring landowner who will use it for a larger backyard. Nicholas Harris of 505 North College paid $1 for the land which was not included in the re-subdivision of the property.

The council approved an ordinance implementing a harassment policy approved earlier.
