A Message from Mayor Byrne

Please read my letter which was sent to the National Park Service in conjunction with the city’s application for approval to construct a retention basin at Nathan Hale Park, which has been designed to provide a solution to an ever increasing storm water problem that plagues this area of the city.  

The installation of the retention basin will give a new life to this park and create a unique experience for the residents by providing a basin to collect storm water that will be designed as lake with a fountain and include a trail, bridge, benches, educational stations, covered pavilion and bathrooms (with the potential for a gazebo near the basin).  The majority of the park will continue to be used for the originally-specified soccer and other recreational activities.

I am confident that the information and documents provided with this submission to the National Park Service will enable us to work collaboratively with the Park Service to move forward on the proposed basin project.
