The circle islands should take about 8 weeks from start to finish. Clean up 2 weeks Rock install 2 weeks Plant install 2 weeks Irrigation 2 weeks Total time 8 weeks. We are entering storm season I estimated a little high to allow for storms, but nature can be cruel and if we are hit by storms the time frame may be extended.
Lot usage will be used for storing rock Storing the plant material for the circle islands Will be irrigated to keep the plants healthy. Upon completion the lot will be restored to its original state with leveling to remove ruts and sod replacement Bahia sod will be used. No cost to Grand Haven The time frame for storage will be for the Circle Island project only and upon completion the usage will end.

The 2011 vine project was budgeted for $30,000. the projects listed above total $10,725. These projects would greatly enhance the landscape at Wild Oaks and other important areas in the community. I recommend we change the line item budgeted amount for the vine removal and use some of the funds to complete these projects. We will still have funds for vine removal and Austin has been removing a lot of the vine as part of their contractual agreement in areas that we should be charged for at no additional charge.
