Ash Creek Enhancement Project

The Ash Creek Conservation Association hired two environmental experts, a wetlands scientist, Dr. Steve Danzer, and an ecological landscape designer, Bryan Quinn to review the plantings by the City and provide suggestions for habitat improvements going forward.  We've shared copies of the report with both Kevin Zawoy at the DEEP and the City (attached).  In addition to planting recommendations, they recommended replacement of the snow fencing with proper wood and wire dune fencing, which the City has already done.  They provided a conceptual drawing for landscape design, which is intended to be a starting point for dialogue.  It is not meant to be a final plan by any means and has no details on plants.  It is a discussion document.  ACCA is looking forward to further discussions with the City as the Parks Master Planning project moves forward.
