Crews will be staking out areas for revised parking lot and driveways, removing and relocating vegetation, and performing some initial grading. The parking lot and driveway construction is anticipated to start this summer and the first phase to be completed by the end of the year.

Long-term, this area will provide for parking and a future picnic shelter.
