Engineering staff are currently working with City Consultants for design of a Regional Stormwater Pond which will enhance the City's ability for economic development and redevelopment of the City's downtown core. The regional pond is anticipated to be located south of Franklin Street and west of Sweetwater Creek on property acquired by the City for this purpose.
Stormwater Management is an important factor to consider in encouraging future private sector investment in the downtown core and the City's facilitation of this effort is essential for growth. The project is still under design, and in September of 2016 the City began exploring efforts to incorporating a Wetlands Park into the project.
