Lake Olmstead Park is set to receive updates to The Julian Smith Casino and the Julian Smith BBQ Pit. These updates are expected to include some visible improvements, such as renovations to the restrooms, along with some less visible improvements, such as upgrades to the HVAC system at the BBQ Pit. This project entered design phase in Summer 2018, and is expected to reach construction by second quarter of 2019. The first public meeting for this project will be March 14 at 6 p.m. at the Julian Smith Casino. This event is free and the public is encouraged to attend. Snacks will be served.
