New outdoor seating installed in downtown Charles City

Charles City, IA – Thanks to the Design Committee of Main Street Charles City, along with support from the AARP Community Challenge Grant and Cultural & Entertainment District Grant Fund, there is a new outdoor seating area available in downtown Charles City.

Having identified the need for more places for the public to hang out while shopping or enjoying a treat downtown, the Design Committee obtained grant funding for two all-season metal picnic tables, including one that is wheelchair accessible. The tables have been placed in the Kelly Mall pedestrian walkway between the 200 and 300 blocks of North Main Street, where there is also a bicycle rack and trash receptacle already located.

The Charles City Park & Recreation Department installed the tables earlier this week.

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
