Construction Questions

16711635_mWe have had a few questions about the changes with the back of the dog park.  
Q:  Will we lose everything in the back 1/2 of the dog park?
A:  We are hoping to get at least 2 feet of dirt up across the back of the dog park.  That means all the foliage will be buried.  If anything isn’t pulled out, we have been told it will die.  So with the exception of the bigger trees yes.
Q:  Will we get more trees?
A:  Yes, we have talked with the county and it will be a phase process of bringing in more trees and we can harvest dog wood and such from other areas of County property.
Q:  Will this fix our standing water problem?
A:  We are hoping this will fix the standing water problem at worse, it will reduce the challenges we have.
Q:  What about the front of the dog park?
A:  We are hoping there will be enough dirt to help with the front of the dog park.  We will know more as the process continues.
Q:  When will the back of the dog park reopen?
A: We do not have that answer as of now.  It will depend on weather and how much dirt we get.  There are two idea being talked about.  One is to keep the section closed off to allow for the grass to take hold and keep the mud down.  The other thought is to open it up as soon as possible to allow for people using it to help settle the dirt.
Q: What about the paths?
A:  We have an opportunity to make new paths.  Those will not be able to be put in until the dirt settles which will be fall is at the earliest, from what we are being told.
Q: What is going to happen with the hedge line?
A:  At least some of the hedge line will be removed to allow for the trucks to come in.  Depending on the amount of dirt the whole hedge line may be removed as it will be partially buried.
Q:  What about our “big” tree?
A:  There is a strong possibility that the Silver Maple (aka the Squirrel tree or the “Big Tree”) will be removed during this processes.  Taking her down was going to require the park to be closed and this may be an opportunity to remove her safely.
Q:  What about WATER!
A:  We are working on a water source also as we are under construction.  We have met with more plumbers and are awaiting quotes.  Once we have the quotes will share as we will need to fund raise for this.
