The East Main Improvement project will offer the citizens of Ashland a park on the south end of town. A public input session was held on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Following a brief presentation, the citizens divided into working groups to view the site plan and play with design elements, such as a dog park, childrens playground and community garden.
