Applicants sought for Cottage Grove inclusive playground panelCitizen Task Force to be created
The City of Cottage Grove is seeking applicants for a citizen task force that will look into the possibility of creating an inclusive playground in the city.
The task force will develop the project concept, identify funding sources and promote the project. The group will meet one to two times per month beginning in March.
Healthcare professionals, parents of children living with challenges, child advocates, educators, researchers and community supporters are encouraged to apply. Interested applicants should contact Molly Pietruszewski at 651-458-3404 or email@example.com by March 2.
An inclusive playground is built for everyone to use and play on together, including those with physical, social, emotional, sensory or cognitive challenges.
It could include modified swings, sensory panel plays, discovery walls, and domes for quiet play. Ramps instead of steps and a solid ground surface would make it accessible for wheelchairs.
