Document Description
The purpose of this project is to provide the community of Clyde with an enhanced recreational facility. The current recreational facility is solely composed of an open grass lot. With minor additions like: landscaping, benches, lighting, and a play structure, the community recreational opportunities will be improved. Currently the site attracts illegal parking inside the park's boundaries. The illegal parking has damaged the natural grass covering of the park, causing bare soil to be exposed for more than half of the park's area, leading to erosion and associated drainage problems. The project consists of planting trees (ten), shrubs and groundcover, construction of an irrigation system for landscaping, installation of a lighting fixture, and installation of three picnic tables and two barbeque pits. Minor alterations of the park's grading and drainage system (a concrete gutter) will be constructed to stop runoff flowing from the parcel's western slope. Grading will also be done to reduce the western slope of the parcel to further alleviate the runoff coming into the park. Following implementation of these improvements, construction of a play structure and additional landscaping will occur. In order to minimize damage to any nearby trees, any roots exposed during excavation will be cut cleanly and tree branches will be trimmed. No tree removal will be necessary. Real property transactions may be necessary in support of this project. At least one lane of Kilburn Street will be open at all times during construction activities.
