Updates as of May 18/ 2015
1) Park Construction
At our meeting on May 6th we heard from the city representatives on the construction project in the park. The major construction involving the super tanks is nearing completion. There is still on line from the north-east corner of the park that needs repair. The dirt pile along the middle of the park will be dispersed through-out once the irrigation lines are finished. The irrigation lines have begun and will continue from now until the end of August. Landscaping restoration has been put out to tender. Sport field areas will have sod installed and minor areas will be re-seeded before September. Any pathways damaged by the super tank construction will be repaired. All other areas will be addressed to the city for consideration.
2) Lakeview Neighborhood Traffic Meeting. Thank you for all those who attended the meeting to provide the city Transportation Division your concerns regarding our neighborhood. They have taken all of the feedback and will prepare a comprehensive report to address these concerns. Another meeting will be taking place mid-June to go over plans and give last minute feedback.

Lakeview Park Sanitary Storage Facility Project
The Sanitary Storage Facility Project will be complete in 2014. However, the park restoration will be extended into 2015, making much of the park unavailable for use. The Lakeview Community Association will continue to run programs, but will be evaluating the use of other nearby locations.
