SHAMOKIN — The Fifth Street playground, located on the southwest border of Shamokin and Coal Township, will be transformed into a remote-control (RC) race track, city council has decided.

On the suggestion of an RC committee consisting of area residents, city council authorized that the playground be redesigned and $5,000 from the recreation fund be used to initiate the project.
