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 at the February 28, 2022, council meeting and construction documents are currently being prepared. The project start date is impacted by whether or not the city received grant funding from Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD), which we expect to receive notice from TPWD by the end of May 2022.
