Update on the Commons Skatepark Parking Lot

More new Skatepark parking lot construction is scheduled for this weekend as the soil is amended with lime. This procedure began on Thursday, January 24 and will take a few days. This frequently-used soil amendment will dry up the persistently wet soil conditions and significantly increase the longevity of the parking lot paving. The white lime powder that you will see in large piles this weekend is a naturally occurring compound, calcium oxide, commonly found in limestone. It is not a hazardous material, but is classified as an irritant. The equipment and methods being used are designed to minimize dust and disturbance while maximizing the effectiveness of the soil treatment by thoroughly blending the lime into the wet, clay soils. Project completion is expected well in advance of the annual Spring Egg Hunt in March.
