Making Unsightly Spaces Beautiful

Concrete work was recently completed for for the installation of a dry river bed. The first shipment of Colorado River Rock was delivered in October of 2019.

This vacated right-of-way was the former site of a City recycling center that became unsightly. Improvements include sidewalks, a dry river bed, and native wildflower beds mixed with native Buffalo grass to ensure beautification year-round. In addition, trees will be planted to serve as a backdrop and provide greenery and screening that will add beauty to the intersection. For passersby, a picnic table will serve to welcome people looking to enjoy the newly improved node.

Future plans may include working with the Public Art Committee to commission a sculpture that would add another element of beautification to the node.
