Shelby is ready to turn one of the most flood-prone areas of its downtown into an attractive place that won't be damaged when the river overflows. Ground was broken Thursday for Black Fork Commons Park, on the site of the former police and municipal court building. The idea for the park followed the flood of 2007, when the Federal Emergency Management Agency recommended the area remain green space. Black Fork Commons Park will cost $363,000, with funding from several sources, but mostly the Shelby parks levy. It will feature a town center loop, amphitheater, and trails, and be completed in November.
