A $10 million renovation of Osgood Park kicked off this week, with Mayor Erin Stewart behind the controls. “It’s very exciting; this has been a long time coming,” Stewart said Thursday morning after stepping down from the machine. “Seeing these buildings come down really signifies the start of this project.” The goal is to have the field up and running by the end of October and the project completed in a year’s time. At the center of it all will be a new, state-of-the-art recreation facility with indoor and outdoor spaces. The laying of the foundation is expected to begin very soon. The construction team is hopeful that materials will come in on schedule, despite delays the past several years due to the covid-19 pandemic. City officials meet with the construction team on a weekly basis for updates, according to the mayor. “I think our partners in Gerber Construction are doing a great job,” she added.
