NEW ALBANY —
SLATE RUN ROAD
Talk about projects in other districts led Councilwoman Diane McCartin-Benedetti to ask Duggins about the status of the delayed Slate Run Road improvements.
“We’re looking at the scope of the project,” Duggins said. “We’re looking at maybe phasing it.”
The Slate Run Road project has been in the works for a few years, but it was delayed after Gahan took office.
Benedetti said Slate Run Road had been in planning before other city projects that are now in design or nearing construction.
BICENTENNIAL PARK ART
The Arts Council of Southern Indiana has donated a sculpture by the late artist Barney Bright to the city, and it will be placed at Bicentennial Park.
The statue will be unveiled during a ceremony at 5 p.m. Thursday at the park, which is located at the corner of Spring Street and Pearl streets. The sculpture was originally donated to the Arts Council by PNC Bank, and will be permanently loaned to the city for display at Bicentennial Park.
TRUNK OR TREAT ON THE WAY
After last year’s event drew more than 2,000 kids to the New Albany Riverfront Amphitheater, the city has decided to again host Trunk or Treat. The event will begin at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the amphitheater. There will be Laser Tag, a costume contest and, of course, candy for the kids.
As the name of the event suggests, kids decked out in their costumes make their way from vehicle to vehicle where they receive candy. The city is looking for businesses and organizations willing to take part in the event. There’s no cost to join, but participants are asked to bring plenty of candy to hand out.
At 8 p.m., the movie “Hotel Transylvania” will be shown.
