The people of North Las Vegas can be happy to hear that they have a new park and a new school.
North Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday night approved a deal with the Clark County School District that will essentially change locations to JD Middle School and Hartke Park.
âWe want to be good partners and participants with the Clark County School District,â said Delen Goldberg, public information officer for the city of North Las Vegas.
The new JD Middle School will be built on the grounds of the current park. CCDS hopes this will improve the learning environment for students.
The new Hartke Park will be built on the school grounds after the building is demolished. It will have all new playground equipment, a new playground, new fields, new courts, new turf, shade structures and more.
“I think it’s good for the kids in the area who could have fun in a new playground and could come here in the summer just to have fun in the water,” said Andrea Pioquinto, alumnus and park lover.
In addition to the new school and the new park, pedestrian safety will be improved on the exterior by raising the medians, curbs, repairing sidewalks and installing traffic control devices.
Part of the deal is that CCSD will pay for the new park.
No timeline has been published for either project.
