SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The reddish stone pathways in Sioux Falls’ Terrace Park will not be ripped out.

The Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/29661tH ) reports city officials on Wednesday delayed making changes to the park until 2018.

The city originally wanted to upgrade the century-old park that’s on the National Register of Historic Places this summer in order make the grounds more accessible to people with disabilities. Part of the plan called for removing quartzite rock pathways and replacing them with concrete.

But city officials have now changed their plains after neighbors raised concerns and the city’s Board of Historic Preservation rejected the plan.

The city has already spent over $39,000 in the project. Parks and Recreation Director Don Kearney says the city will be able to recoup some of the money by repurposing some of the construction materials.
