COVINGTON, Ky. - Some major changes could be coming to Devou Park in the near future.
Covington city commissioners will vote Tuesday night on a slate of recommended renovations.
The Devou Park Advisory Committee and Devou Properties Inc. drafted the recommendations, which they say are overdue at the popular but aging park.
Most of the renovations would be made at the park's clubhouse.
Mayor Sherry Carran says both groups want to see money used to build a new event center at the park's golf course.
The clubhouse is old, Carran said, and cannot accommodate the amount of people it needs for many events.
Devou Properties has committed more than $515,000 for potential renovations. The money was generated from events held at Drees Pavillion over the years.
Also, $365,000 of unused funds from last year would be used.
Other recommendations include creating new street signs at the park, making repairs to the Behringer-Crawford Museum, and upgrading the area where the swimming pool used to be.
City commissioners will meet at City Hall at 6 p.m. Tuesday to vote on the renovation plans.
Carran told 9 On Your Side reporter Amy Wadas if the renovations are approved the designs for a new event center could be made within the next year.
