The city of Merced wants you to vote on the next play structure that will go into Applegate Park.
City staff have picked three possible new structures for the play area near the corner of 25th and R streets, where city staff tore out the old structure because of safety concerns. The old jungle gym was more than two decades old, staffers said.
The three options were first made public Tuesday at a town hall-style meeting at the Multicultural Arts Center on Main Street. Residents were asked to put a sticker on the option they liked best. The third option, which has a forest theme, showed the early lead.
City staffers have said previously the options range from $90,000 to $150,000.
The city took input on Tuesday and staffers plan to display the options at the next two town hall meetings: 6 p.m. Feb. 26 at Tenaya Middle School, 760 W. 8th St., and 6 p.m. Feb. 27 at Rivera Middle School, 945 Buena Vista Drive.
The equipment could be ready by late spring or early summer, according to staffers.
