Second Street Landscaping Project

June 10, 2020 Update

Project has been completed.

Nov. 14, 2019 Update

Status on maintenance for this project between Prosperity Avenue and the South Diversion Channel: There are currently a few shrubs that have died, but will be replaced in October 2019. There are some trees that have brown leaves, but this is due to overwatering. We have cut back on the irrigation and they already have new growth. We’ll monitor these trees, and all other plantings throughout the winter. In spring we’ll see what will be need to be replaced. Please call Christi Tanner at 848-1523 with any questions.

Project Scope

The 2nd Street Landscaping Project will consist of naturalistic and native landscaping and irrigation utilizing green stormwater infrastructure methodologies. Funding for this project is provided through a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), which launched the Great Urban Parks Campaign in 2015 with the primary purpose of improving environmental and social outcomes in underserved communities through promoting and advancing green stormwater infrastructure projects within parks.

Purpose

The purpose of this grant opportunity is to demonstrate the effectiveness of green stormwater infrastructure to positively affect environmental and social change in underserved communities, and to empower residents to be actively engaged in projects that address community needs and meet local stormwater management goals. Through this funding NRPA aims to create replicable model projects that provide strategies and lessons learned that advance the implementation of green stormwater infrastructure projects in parks as a resiliency strategy for communities across the country.

This funding will support green stormwater infrastructure projects that achieve the following key objectives:

  1. Improved environmental quality including:
  • Enhanced water quality
  • Increased climate resiliency through reduced flooding
  • Improved ability of the site to hold and retain stormwater
  • Improved and increased green space and wildlife habitat
  1. Increased access to high quality park and recreation space within underserved communities, and increased access to related recreation, environmental education and green job opportunities.
  2. An engaged community empowered to improve local environmental quality through green infrastructure solutions.

Project is completed.

Currently, the county is monitoring the plants’ growth, and if any plants do not make it through this winter, they will be replaced in Spring 2020.
