Turf Restoration Update
Due to the lack of progress on establishing turf free of significant weeds, the City ended the turf restoration portion of the contract with Park Construction and their subcontractor. The City will hire a different contractor to complete turf establishment. Their work will include the following:
- 9/15/21 – Herbicide application completed at selective locations to remove the weeds.
- October 2021 – Another herbicide application is scheduled to occur to remove the weeds.
- April / May 2022 – Inspect for low spots and begin reestablishing seed to meet City specifications.
- June 2022 – Watering turf.
Resident are not required to do any lawn improvements at this time. However, we encourage you to mow the weeds this fall and help water the turf in spring 2022. Additional tips for growing green grass in 2022 can be found here.
We understand the turf restoration process has been lengthy and frustrating. We will work hard to correct this starting this fall and continuing next spring. The City will continue to review the turf in the project area next summer to ensure proper growth, which takes time.
