The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

Improvements, clean-up efforts in progress at Sankey; more in pipeline


June 13, 2018

MELCHER LOGGING employees remove slash at Sankey Park earlier this spring following the felling of trees to thin the forest in the park. The thinning is part of the process of upgrades that will include a new pedestrian bridge, replacing bathrooms and other improvements.

The City of Sweet Home is moving forward with improvements at Sankey Park, last week sending out a request for proposals for a new pedestrian bridge over Ames Creek upstream from Weddle Bridge.

Soon the city will begin working on replacing the bathrooms at a new location, and last month, Cascade Timber Consulting removed numerous trees.

The city posted the request for proposals for the bridge on May 15. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing and consider a conditional use permit for the Sankey Park project at 6:40 p.m. on Monday in the City Hall Annex, 1140 12th Ave.
