St. Paul Considers Future For Site Where 2 Died
ST. PAUL (AP) -- St. Paul city officials are considering the future of a park site where two children died in a landslide.
Some reported options recommended by the consulting firm Barr Engineering Company include reopening it with restricted use or stabilizing the slopes with mechanical grading.
St. Paul Parks and Recreation Department spokesman Brad Meyer says the firm's final report is to be delivered to the city by January.
It will then be up to city officials to decide.
He says Mayor Chris Coleman and the parks director have said they hope the area can reopen, but they intend to wait for the final report.
After the landslide May 22, 2013, two children died and two children were injured and a 50-acre area of the park was closed.
