Hawthorne Park Makeover Meeting

MEDFORD, Ore. — Hawthorne Park may be approved for a new makeover this evening.

Officials say they hope the new design will curb crime in the area and make it more attractive for families. The new plan includes a spray pad, basketball courts, artwork and two dog parks.

The Medford Urban Renewal Agency will consider the new proposal for $1.7 million in a re-design tonight at 6 p.m.

A bond levy proposed to pay for two new pools was denied last year.
