The Superior Town Council held a special meeting on Monday, Feb. 11, 2019, to discuss and approve a series of economic and community development agreements between the Town of Superior and Resolution Copper Mining.  The Town has been working collaboratively with Resolution Copper on significant economic and community development agreements for the past year.  In addition, the Superior Unified School District, Superior Chamber of Commerce and Rebuild Superior, Inc. also participated in the development of these agreements. 

A total of three agreements were presented to the Town Council for approval.  The first agreement is a contract in the amount of $200,000 to fund playground and park improvements for the US 60 Park.  This agreement is part of the mitigations for the loss of the historic smelter structures that were demolished in November of 2018.  This funding will be used to build a new mining-themed playground at the US 60 Park and will be combined with funding through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding allocated for park improvement projects.  Work is expected to begin on these park improvements later this year.  The Town of Superior Youth Council will be selecting the playground equipment and assisting with the US 60 park remodel.
