The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, December 17 on the Roper Park Stream Stability Project. The informal meeting is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Oak Lake Evangelical Free Church, 3300 N. 1st St.

The proposed project to improve water quality and public safety in Roper Park includes bank stabilization, bridge abutment protection, channel reshaping, stream bank stabilization, vegetative buffers along the creek and establishment of bioretention areas.

Those who attend will have the opportunity to view concept drawings and preliminary plans. Participants may meet with project team members from the City and the design consultant, EA Engineering, Science and Technology, Inc.

The project is funded through the 2012 stormwater bond issue. Construction is expected to occur in late 2014.
