McLaren Trail Connector Project Underway

We are pleased to announce that we have a contractor on board to complete the McLaren Trail Connector/ Trail Entry Improvements Project.  Following a check with a consulting biologist to ensure no active bird nesting activity, the Contractor will fence off limit of work area and begin with tree work this Friday or early next week.   We will also be “clearing and grubbing” or removing weeds like blackberry and preparing the soil for new native plants.

Please note that we will be planting the entry at the top of Campbell Ave right to the edge of the concrete.  We distributed flyers to all neighbors on this top block of Campbell regarding the fact that parking will not be allowed at the top of the street during construction nor once the project is complete.

This Campbell Ave entry is pictured below (view into the park as well as view from the park looking east down the street):

Once we have a detailed schedule worked out with the contractor, we will arrange for a community planting at the trailhead near the picnic area on Persia.  For your safety and for the safety of our contractors and their staff, please keep out of fenced areas and respect temporary closure notices.

We anticipate that this project will be completed by late Summer/ early Fall 2014.
