The public is invited to an open house on the proposed design of water quality improvements for Antelope Creek near 70th Street and Pioneers Boulevard. The meeting is from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 16 at the Hyde Memorial Observatory in Holmes Park. A short presentation will begin at 5:15 p.m.
The project area runs along Antelope Creek from about 75th and Pioneers on the south to Holmes Lake and the dog run on the north.
Design work has begun for the project, which will include stabilizing the banks to prevent ongoing erosion, constructing additional water quality wetland areas and protecting areas of high foot traffic. Construction is expected to begin this year.
At the open house, representatives of the City of Lincoln and its project consultants will be available to discuss the proposed design and answer questions.
If you have any questions before the meeting or are unable to attend, please contact either Don Day with Olsson Associates at 458-5644 or Ed Kouma with the City of Lincoln at 441-7018.
To reach Hyde Memorial Observatory go west on the South Shore Road entrance to Holmes Park off 70th Street. This is the same entrance used to get to the golf course. Continue past the golf course turnoff, and the observatory is on your left.
