Plans for irrigation and planting restoration of will be discussed at Tuesday's City Council meeting, and the city will soon be accepting bids for the job.
The decision to restore the park was made last year after the about the condition of its slopes and vegetation.
The city’s Director of Public Works Dave Rogers stated last year that while the city was not at risk of actually losing the slopes in the park, they had been advised by geo-engineers to quit watering the slopes to reduce sloughage, which caused a loss in vegetation.
Therefore, the cost of repairs, at last report around $300,000, will go entirely toward redoing the landscape to bring the park back to “Laguna Niguel standards.”
The City Council will also:
- Hear the annual presentation of the Safe City Plan, presented by Chief of Police Services Lt. Andy Ferguson.
