North Shore: Key Projects to Date

29 01 2014


Due to the lack of maintenance for many years, the silt has built up and created islands within the stream bed.  The build-up is so heavy that coconut trees that are forty feet high are growing in these silt beds.  Council Chair Martin has been requesting funding to dredge this stream for the past three years. In fiscal year 2013, Chair Martin proposed a budget bill line item  for $350,000 to plan and design the extraction of the silt and vegetation that impedes this critical streamway. The funding was approved and the project is moving forward.

Sunset Neighborhood Park

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADue to the soil condition under the courts at the Sunset Neighborhood Park, the City’s administration was reluctant to re-pave the tennis and basketball courts for many years. The residents often voiced their displeasure about the lack of maintenance and not being able to use these courts. Finally in 2012, due to Council Chair Martin’s persistence, these courts were re-surfaced and re-striped.  The residents and community are actively using them.

Shown here are the new management with Council Chair in front and in a newly renovated unit.
