McEuen: Fall Work About To Conclude

From Keith Erickson, spokesman for Lake City Development Corp:

Work on the 2012 McEuen Park project will wrap up by mid-November with crews expected to pave the southern entrance to the new City Hall parking lot at 8th Street and Young Avenue early next week. Both new City Hall lots will be open to the public by Nov. 16, although finishing touches on the parking areas may impose minor inconveniences over the next several weeks. The upgraded parking lots will accommodate 186 vehicles and 26 boat trailer spots. Crews are hoping to hydroseed the parking lot islands this fall. Next spring, 43 trees and 235 bushes will be planted within those areas. Meantime, gravel has been laid on the new trail along the base of Tubbs Hill. Soggy fall conditions have postponed paving until next spring. Though work will soon be shutting down for the season, crews plan to install light poles in the City Hall lots and construct a retaining wall along Young Avenue west of 8th Street over the winter. Construction will resume next spring and focus on redevelopment of the park.

Question: What is your impression of initial work on McEuen Field upgrade?
