County supervisors are due to decide Tuesday whether to pitch in $1 million to upgrade the front of William S. Hart Park, replacing chain link with a masonry-and-wrought-iron fence and improving the entrance.

If given the OK, the project would be paid for with $315,000 in county excess funds - money from a property-tax bill used for parks and regional open space - and $685,000 in county general funds, said Sussy Nemer, parks deputy for Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

"Our office and the parks department have met the city and have gone over the renderings," Nemer said. "We've collaborated on the design and the schedule as well."

The project would replace the existing chain-link fence along Newhall Avenue, install wrought-iron entry gates at 24151 Newhall Ave., add irrigation and landscaping at the pedestrian and vehicle access points, and pave and align the road at the staff entrance, according to a letter from the Los Angeles County Chief Executive Office.

If approved, construction on the project should begin mid-August and be completed by the first week of December, Nemer said.
