The Board of Directors authorized the construction phase on the Jogging Trail Project Phase 2 at the August Board Meeting. Construction is underway and anticipated to be complete by Spring 2021. The Board of Directors selected a Landscape Architect at the August 2020 Board Meeting to evaluate the District’s park area and develop recommendations for future improvements. This Information has been published to the District’s website (see link below). The District encourages all individuals interested in the projects to review the maps provided and attend the Board of Director’s monthly meetings held at 6:00 PM on the second Tuesday of every month.
