Thank you all for your participation in last night’s community meeting. Rec and Park staff presented the solution to the drainage issues which include minor lawn excavation to install one inch pipes in a grid pattern underneath the lawn. These pipes will both contain and redirect surface water. In addition, the drain pipes along the south will be extended to a new concrete drain (catch basin) that captures water runoff from the hillside.
The system is being designed by Department of Public Works engineers so that the construction contractor may start installation late February. The park will reopen spring 2014.
Thank you for your continued support and patience.
