Construction activity begins this month on a project that replaces existing lights at Glenmere Park, 1400 Glenmere Blvd. The plan for the park focuses on replacing outdated lights and overhead lines with new underground power and poles that replicate lighting from the early 1900s—when Glenmere was first founded.
“Glenmere Park sees a lot of use throughout the year so we’ll try to keep construction impacts to a minimum. We want visitors to continue using the area,” says Parks Planner Sarah Boyd. “However, we need the public’s help. We need visitors to respect construction equipment and barriers for everyone’s safety and so the project doesn’t see delays.”
Depending on the weather, the project should be completed by June. For more information about this project, contact the Parks Division at 970-350-9390.
