Edloe Street Pathway

Project Overview

As a result of Winter Storm Uri in February 2021, over 150 old-growth Oleanders died in this record freeze. These Oleanders, and numerous scrub trees on Edloe from Albans to the property boundary at Tiny’s #5, have since been removed leaving an opportunity to improve the aesthetics and enjoyment of this area. Staff consulted with Terralab Landscape Architects to explore opportunities for a pedestrian trail and enhanced landscaping in this area.  

Improvements were approved after the February 28, 2022, council meeting and construction documents will be released on September 7. The successful bidder will be recommended for approval by City Council at its regular meeting on Monday, October 10. Improvements to the pathway are anticipated to be completed by January 2023.

 

Notable changes to the concept drawings presented after the February 28 City Council meeting:

• Due to visibility concerns, a number of ornamental trees were removed.

• To preserve trees along the concrete wall bordering Tiny’s #5, ornamental steel fence will be used.

• The trail alignment and plantings were slightly revised.
