COLUMBIA — The public has an opportunity Tuesday to give feedback on the preliminary plans for a new concession and restroom building at the Atkins Park baseball fields.

Columbia Parks and Recreation is hosting a public meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Parks Management Center. Senior park planner Mike Snyder said an invitation was specifically extended to representatives of different baseball leagues to give their input on the building’s design.

Snyder said the new building is part of the park sales tax initiative to improve existing parks. One million dollars over a two-year period has been allocated for both the concession and restroom building and the construction of an additional baseball field at Atkins Park.

With the addition of the building, there will be no more need for portable toilets, and people will be able to sit at shaded tables, Snyder said. He added that construction for the building will possibly start this summer.
