Greeley City Council Work Session Presentation - April 12
Bittersweet Park Update
Following several weeks of feedback and community input about the 2020 Bittersweet Park irrigation and landscape updates, Greeley City Council came to a consensus to make additional modifications. At its work session on Tuesday, April 12, Council directed City staff to convert the areas surrounding the Weld County Veterans and Fallen Officers memorials, approximately 5.6 acres, back to bluegrass. The conversion will allow better access to the sites for annual events, improve aesthetics along 35th Avenue, and keeps the existing irrigation system. City staff will now look at budgeting for the project and the timeline for installation of the new grass around the memorials. Watch the video to hear the full discussion.
The Bittersweet Park irrigation and turf conversion project started as scheduled in 2020. The irrigation components and new soft surface trail are complete. Seeding and reseeding work will continue for the next several growing seasons. We appreciate the public’s patience during the construction and disruption during the project. The project is not over yet as it takes several growing seasons to establish native grasses, but the most disruptive construction work has been completed.
Questions and concerns may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-350-9390.
