The District completed numerous capital projects intended to improve the quality of life within the District and promote water conservation. These include the addition of a walking/jogging trail within Barski Park (Phase 1 & 3), a children’s splash pad area, a new playground, a pavilion, a village park playground, and a reclaimed water irrigation system to serve the community’s greenspace areas. 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.
