Friends of Richter Park will hold its an­nual meet­ing at 6 p.m. Wed­nes­day at Richter House, with plans to con­tinue a mul­ti­year project to re­store and im­prove sev­eral as­pects of the city’s arts and sports fa­cil­ity.

Con­struc­tion is sched­uled later this year on the first phase of mod­ern­iza­tion of the 1920 Richter House, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease. Con­necti­cut has ear­marked $1 mil­lion for the project, with the city con­tribut­ing a $500,000 match.

The group raises money to pay for im­prove­ments included in a 25-year mas­ter plan for Richter Park’s a golf course, ten­nis courts, hik­ing trails and Richter House, which hosts mu­si­cal per­for­mances and art ex­hibits.

All city res­i­dents are in­vited.
