Renovations, improvements planned for Copeland Park

Main entrance, grand stands also being considered for improvements

Copeland Park could be seeing some changes in the next couple of years.

On Thursday night the City of La Crosse Park Board gave the green light for the Loggers to start looking at between $900,000 and $1 million worth of improvements to the facilities.

The much needed improvements include two new buildings; one for permanent restrooms, a retail store, and a ticket booth. The other would be for concessions with a roof connecting it to the original concession building.

They are also looking at renovating the main entrance and the underbelly of the grand stand.

The Loggers would be paying for all of the improvements, so no tax dollars would be used.  Team officials will meet with the city in December to go over the plans. They hope to begin construction by next spring.
