Status of current project behind Kmart.

The leveling of this area by bulldozer has not taken place yet. Byron John has had the landscaping maps for about a month. It was suggested that a BYU-Idaho student be assigned by Byron John to head the landscaping of this area. The student and Byron John should do a walk through before and after leveling to give input for the placement of earth. Irrigation and electricity need to be installed prior to paving. Placement will depend on landscaping plans.
Standards for landscaping and trail accessories (benches, lamps, etc.) need to be set. Use Byron John in setting and implementation of standards. Concerning trail lighting, what will be the hours of operation? The cost of electricity must be evaluated. Who will be responsible for the cost of electricity? DaNiel Jose and Keith Davidson met with a representative from Amcor concerning the bridge on the L.P. property. Amcor will make a bid on the project.

Clean up areas

A number of groups were suggested for the clean up of trail areas, including BYU-Idaho students, county inmates, and community service detail groups.

Project near treatment plant

A map of this area with its associated project sections will be added to A packet for each section will be made for service project groups. A service log will be kept with each packet to record all volunteer names and hours. This information could be a support tool in the application of future grants.
