Current Projects

Upcoming/Future Projects

  • County Highway 16 Trail: In 2020, the city plans to construct a new multi-use trail (non-motorized) between Spring Lake Drive and County Highway 18 that will complete the gap of the County Highway 16 Regional Trail
  • Highway 169 Pedestrian Trail Connection: The city continues to apply for federal transportation funding to construct a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over Highway 169. The city has future plans to build a pedestrian bridge over Highway 169, connecting the Quarry Lake area with the Dean Lake/Southbridge area.
  • Lions Park Warming House: The city removed the former warming house in 2017-18 due to safety issues. The City Council has decided to pause all major park development projects until completing a master park development and management plan. We anticipate that plan will be developed throughout 2018.
