East Overland entrance to get a facelift
Scottsbluff city employee Andrea Folck says the area between Broadway and 1st Avenue on East Overland "needed something," and she is trying to make it more attractive.
Folck, the city's Stormwater program specialist, is behind the effort this week and even into next week to install a sustainable landscape in the one block area shut off to traffic. Folck says the project will include an extensive tree and shrub planting as well as a series of rain gardens.
The project, designed by Amy Seiler with the Nebraska Forest Service, focuses on collecting and utilizing stormwater runoff from over 10,000 square feet of rooftops and pavement. Funding for the project is provided by grant funds from the Greener Nebraska Towns Initiative.
