Schwartz Road Park to Get Second Entrance
City buying land from Schwartz family
Soccer moms and dads in Avon have something to celebrate.
The city will buy the land from descendents of the Schwartz family, which has owned the land for more than 100 years. The price is $125,000.
"When you start packing that many people in, you need another way in and out," Mayor Jim Smith said after the meeting.
The city plans to use the land to create the access to the park. Smith said trees will be planted to shield neighbors from lots of glare from the headlights of cars going into or leaving the park.
The red barn that has been on the Schwartz property for as long as anyone can remember is also part of the deal.
"We would love to keep it and use it," Smith said.
The land also comes with access to public utilities, so there can be future building such as another concession stand or restrooms.
