    Construction for this project is complete. The City repaired the stream at Lower Longview Drive by stabilizing the area. This reduces erosion and protects the stream. Planting along the streambank will take place this winter.

    • Extending a stormwater pipe that goes to the creek to prevent erosion in the future; and
    • Protecting the outlet of the stream.
