The ‘front curb’ is partially poured. This curb will be the foundation for the front fence posts – necessary to prevent penetration of the landfill cap. Topsoil and pea-stone have been delivered. Construction is now shut down until spring.

Looking south – entryway pad, bench pad, small shade structure pad. The large shade structure pad is hidden behind the piles of pea-stone.

The contractor has screened approximately 5000 cubic yards of fill (currently stockpiled in north Amherst) and has hauled and graded 1,325 cubic yards of fill to the site. Construction has shut down for the winter, but DPW will continue to work with the contractor during the winter to order all remaining materials – benches, fencing, shade structures, etc. Construction will resume in the spring as soon as conditions warrant.
