City Park Construction Update
Sept. 13, 2019
The new amphitheater went vertical this week! Shapes, textures, and shadows lit by the setting Texas sun provides a beautiful and warm backdrop to the many events that the future holds in store for the community!
Not to worry, these aren’t giant anthills or mole mounds....the City Park grounds are receiving an injection of nutrients with rich compost to mix into the topsoil in preparation for the planting of grass, trees, and shrubs! In conjunction with the City’s other bond projects and supporting contractors, we’ve cut costs by harvesting over 20,000 cubic yards of fill to raise the park grounds over six feet from the pre-existing conditions! That’s the equivalent to filling four football fields three feet deep! This was done to mitigate future flooding hazards of the park space!
The setting sun casts a glow of future promise and light over the City Park and an anticipated completion of the end of March 2020!
