Friends of the Band Shell Park members, John Gregor and Larry Saur talked about future of the band shell on KUMD. You can listen to their interview here:
“Friends of the Band Shell Park, Inc.” (FOBSP) is pleased to announce that they have been awarded an $8,000 grant from the Northeast Minnesota Sustainable Development Partnership (NMSDP), a division of the Extension Office at the University of MN/Duluth. Grant funds will be used to assess and develop options for the band shell and surrounding area in Two Harbors’ Thomas Owens Park. The current band shell is over 70 years old.
The first phase in the planning process will be to hire an architectural/engineering firm to assess the current band shell and to develop preliminary plan options for the bandshell and park from which an artist’s rendering will be drawn. Community meetings, facilitated by staff from the NMSDP/UMD, will be held during the planning process to ensure that the band shell and park meet the needs of the community.
