The first phase of a project that will revitalize Melfort's Spruce Haven neighbourhood is nearing completion.
Director of Community Services Ryan Danberg told northeastNOW they have bumped the launch date up to late July.
"With the early melt and how quick it happened, the New Line group was able to mobilize a lot sooner than we anticipated so we're going to be a little bit ahead of schedule," he said.
While optimistic for an earlier launch, Danberg ackowledged a lot of concrete work had yet to be done, and so if the city received lots of rain over the next couple months, construction would be delayed.
The $700,000 project has been paid for through the city's capital budget. Danberg said the project is merely a piece of bigger plans for the neighbourhood.
"It's kind of the first phase of the Spruce Haven recreation area. Yet to come in that area we've got a splash park as well as a playground," he said.
Danberg said he expected those projects to be rolled out over the next two years.
