Thousands of truckloads of soils to be relocated from and to the Downtown Park this summer

Jon Spanger, staff in the Ives and Marchione Administration, non-nonchalantly reported in last night's Council Study Session some alarming news about the development of the Downtown Park.

The park land is loaded with peat.  The peat has to be removed and replaced with dirt for stabilization.  15,000 yards -- a thousand truckloads -- must be removed. Probably another thousand truckloads will be needed to bring in replacement dirt.

The work is scheduled for 2-3 months this summer.  To make matters worse, the city will be working on the Cleveland--Redmond Way couplet conversion at the same time.  The Administration plans to hold several public meetings about it all.

This is to be expected when you put a town smack dab in the middle of a swamp AKA floodplain.
