The Panther Street ditch is an open drainage ditch that receives drainage from the Lake Charm, Garden Grove, and Lake Charm Country Estates subdivisions, as well as nearby single family homes.
The proposed improvements along Panther Street include the installation of a closed-pipe drainage system to replace the open drainage ditch. This project will help reduce maintenance issues and enhance the stormwater management system.
Phasing the construction was determined to be beneficial to minimize impacts to residents, city staff resources, and contractor availability. Commencement of Phase 1 is anticipated to start May 2020. Future fiscal year budget requests are anticipated to complete portions of the phased work as necessary.
