City staff, Park Creek Metro District and other stakeholders have been meeting to finalize construction plans, budget and funding for Westerly Creek North and Uplands open space so that construction can start in January. Re-grading of the channel has to be done during the dry season (winter), so delays now could mean the project would be delayed for a year. All parties are working together to ensure a January 2015 start.
Although the area has been remediated, additional issues could be discovered during construction. A plan has been put in place that would allow immediate remediation to be done and checked during the construction process to avoid delays.
