A $45,000 grant from the Foundation to the City of Edmond will assist with the construction of a community/city facility.
The City of Edmond, located in Norton County, is in need of a gathering place and location for the city office. The Edmond Methodist Church previously provided space for community events. The church was damaged beyond repair when the roof collapsed during a storm in 2014.
Plans are in place to construct a structure in the city park that will include a kitchenette and restrooms. It will provide space for city council and other community meetings, social events, reunions and storage of city records. As a part of the total project, a community clean up and beautification of the park is planned. The park is adjacent to Kansas Highway 9. A new sign will welcome visitors to the community.
