Tree removal for the Valley View Road Detention Pond project began today, Monday, March 9. The trees that are being removed are on City property or within the right-of-way and are being removed ahead of the full construction of the project which is scheduled for construction later this summer. Minimal traffic disruptions are anticipated.
The trees are being removed ahead of the pond construction in order to meet the project’s environmental requirements.
The detention pond (dry pond) project will provide both storm water storage and water quality improvements and was designed to minimize private environmental impacts as much as possible, including saving trees where applicable.
