FUTURE CANYON COUNTRY COMMUNITY CENTER UPDATE
Phase I of the Canyon Country Community Center project continues to make progress on the corner of Soledad Canyon Road and Sierra Highway. As Phase I nears completion later this year, residents will see the final touches put on the Mint Canyon Channel, as well as construction of the site’s infiltration systems and completion of the rough grading. Phase I is scheduled to be completed at the end of this year. Phases II and III are expected to begin construction after the first of the year and take approximately 18 months to complete. Phases II and III include the construction of the community center building and site improvements.

CANYON COUNTRY PARK INCLUSIVE PLAY AREA UPDATE
The public outreach process for the Inclusive Play Area project included three public outreach meetings at Canyon Country Park. The public meetings were ‘open house’ style, allowing the attendees to learn about the project, share their thoughts and ideas on the project with City staff and the consultants, vote on play elements and review and comment on the preliminary and revised designs.
Construction will begin in September 2019 and the grand opening of the City’s first Inclusive Play Area will take place by the end of this year.

ARTS IN CANYON COUNTRY
The Ground Beneath Me; Not Above Me, So Enjoy Life
On display Aug. 2 to Dec. 3, 2019
Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library
The images in this display were created by a local photographer who had cancer and radiation treatment, but did not let that stop him from making art. Through the difficult ordeal, the artist continued to photograph, create art, appreciate nature, live and love life.
This exhibit hopes to remind everyone to stay positive, have a good attitude and continue to live life to its fullest.
