The Storage Area Takes Shape!
PCM Committee members have been planning, measuring and laying out the Park’s improved storage area. Trees and stumps have been removed, sixty yard of base rock has been spread and walked into the soft ground and two hundred yards of crushed rock will be added to level and strengthen the ground’s ability to bear weight.
In the next few days, more crushed rock will go down, be leveled and compacted. Then a day or two to carefully measure and lay out new spaces and apply paint to mark boundaries. A new space numbering system will be the final step in the project.
The monsoon rains seem gone for now and the ground is already bringing to dry out. We are on budget with the project should be finished by the end of next week.
Dar is doing an incredible job in identifying where and what storm cleanup is needed where and by Park workers or professionals. Oregon Tree Works will come into work for two days in 2 or 3 weeks. As a result the PCM M&O budget will be overspent by about $2,500 for fiscal 2018-19. More work is planned for August 2019.

Botner Excavations will be back in the Park on Thursday next to begin the final service replacements; about 30 to finish!
