A donated scoreboard, a welcome sign and a rebuilt road were approved Wednesday by the City Council for a new park under construction in south Farmington.

Called South Park, the project is being built at 1400 South, just off the I-15 frontage road.That location, with its visibility from the busy freeway, may earn the park a donated electronic scoreboard worth $3,500.

Recreation director Viola Kinney is negotiating an agreement with Coca-Cola to donate the board to the city. The company would donate the board, with its ad logo, in return for the city's promise to replace its Pepsi machines in city buildings with Coke machines and sale of Coke products at city parks and functions.

After some debate, the council gave the agreement conditional approval. Councilman David Connors was enthusiastic about the idea, suggesting the company might be interested in donating another scoreboard for the city's Main Park.

The council also approved adding a "Welcome to Farmington" sign to the park.

The council also gave formal approval to a $16,000 project to lower and rebuild the frontage road along the park's west side.
