A grant of $50,000 from the Pella Rolscreen Foundation will help construct the shelter house. This grant was requested by Pella Corp. Operations in Sioux Center, working in conjunction with Van Meeteren.
The new shelter house is designed to offer a larger, up-to-date climate-controlled space for gatherings as well as arts and recreation classes at the park. Project plans include a paved parking area with connections to the shelter house and recreation trail, all designed to promote accessibility.
If construction follows the planned schedule, completion is slated for the spring of 2019.
