Recent Projects

11/7/2014 - Terrace Oaks Grant Partnership for Oak Savanna Restoration
The City has entered into a grant partnership with Great River Greening to restore 19 acres of natural habitat and oak savanna at Terrace Oaks Park.  Work will begin in the winter of 2014-2015 and continue until 2017 or until all grant funds have been utilized.  The first step in this project will involve the removal of unwanted woody species in the project area, especially common buckthorn.  The removals will help return the area to an open-canopied oak savanna.  During the woody species removal, there may be minor impacts to the trail system and sidewalks within the project area.  For more information on the project or to view a map of the project area, please view the press release here
