Teddy Bear Park/Water Plant – The wall extension, fence and gate installation have been completed. Irrigation will be installed along the wall in July.

Commerce Park Waterline Loop – Work has begun and was scheduled to be completed in March, but had some delays due to unexpected line locations.  Project has resumed and was completed in June.  These two loops provide the Business Park with better fire protection and flow by completing a looped water system.
