Here is another update regarding the status of closing Riverbend Park.
While it may seem that nothing is happening, we want to assure you that plenty is happening behind the scenes. District staff are meeting with Design and Engineer consultants weekly to finalize the assessment process of the damages and restoration of Riverbend Park. This task is quite time consuming. However, we are excited at the proposed changes that are being suggested. The District flood insurance agents have also begun to process their assessments and are willingly working with District consultants to get this project started.
As a reminder the park will remain closed to the public until we can assure it is safe for public use. Public Safety is our number one concern. Also keep in mind that the outflows of the spillway will continue to happen as long as the inflows are greater than the outflows.
We will be planning a Public Workshop in the near future so be sure to check back often for updates. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions that have been sent in. In the meantime we appreciate your patience and understanding during this closure. Please respect the closing of the park and we are working hard to get Riverbend Park back open as soon as possible.
One last note, through collaborative efforts we hosted a cleanup of transient camps in the south end of Riverbend Park this week. We will continue to strive to offer a clean, safe park for all to enjoy.
Enjoy the holiday weekend and as always thank you for your support.
