$1.3 million in stimulus funds to be used for project

Homesteader Park may undergo a major facelift soon.

The city of Powell is proceeding with plans to build a new rest area, picnic structures and walking paths and to renovate the park's east-end road system, landscaping, irrigation and parking lots.

“It's effectively a new park with a rest area included,” said Sean Christensen, Powell city engineer.

One year ago, the Powell Panthers made a spirited run up to the consolation championship at the 3A state basketball tournament in Casper. Months later, the memories and the trophy are about all that remain from that experience.

New head coach Mike Heny is one of three new members of the boys basketball coaching staff (along with Waleryan Wisniewski and Chase Kistler). He inherits a team that returns just two players who saw any varsity court time for the Panthers during the 2008-2009 campaign.

The facility would be leased to Eleutian Technology.
