Detention Pond update

Postby Benzie » Wed Nov 16, 2016 9:46 am

Update from weekly digest I get from the City of Golden,

Earth work for the pond, next to the glider landing field and the Chimney Gulch trails will start late this week or early next week. Watch for heavy equipment in that area.

Something to note - an official City of Golden communication refers to that patch of land as "the glider landing field".

There is light at the end of this long, dark tunnel after all!

Suggest we have a party in the LZ when finished and invite the city/county/parks/cdot people.

Document and submit application for foundation funding for improvement.

Take key personnel flying.

Stopped by the LZ this weekend and shot a few phone-photos for reference. Take a look. Seems like we might be closing in on a finish date. Who is our club POC for info on the project? Suggest we arrange for a ribbon-cutting press event with the city and JeffCo.

East end standing water pool. That pipe doesn't seem to be connected to anything. Is it a prop of some sort?

Here's a couple of wide pano-shots to give some scale. Even though we're technically losing half the LZ, the east-west corridor still seems sufficient for our needs.
