Upcoming CIP Projects

Project Name:                            Pedestrian Pathway 

Location:                                     Fuchs Park

Construction Timeline:            May – October 2021

 

This project entails the construction of a new pedestrian and bicycle-friendly pathway (asphalt) along the perimeter of the pond at Fuchs Park. The pathway features two (2) lookout spaces, one (1) polygon pre-fab shelter, and ADA access improvements to existing restroom facilities and covered picnic shelter. This capital improvement project also entails the removal of invasive species within project design site; removal and/or relocation of native tree species that are either in direct conflict with project design site, possess constructability concerns or mortality.

 

At a minimum, the City plans to install 36 hardwood tree replacements along the new pathway and at the park during fiscal year 2021-2022. 

 

It’s our belief that this new park improvement will discourage camping, loitering and excessive littering along the perimeter of pond; improve accessibility and park aesthetics; and, provide both physical and mental health benefits to our residents and visitors.
