Murphys, CA — With the hope of getting a new park out of the deal, Calaveras officials agreed to apply for a grant to improve one and a half acres behind the Murphys Hotel.
The park would be an extension of Murphys Park, which is located across the street and run by the Murphys Community Club.
Currently the club leases the site from the county and uses a building on it for small gatherings.
If awarded, initial grant funding through Proposition 50 will be used to restore and clean up the site.
Future projects include new restrooms and a community center to accommodate larger functions.
