Adams Hunt

River rock was placed as edging around the above ground natural gas box and surrounding bollards to minimize weed-eating, prevent the spreading of chemicals to limit encroaching weeds, and assist with water infiltration.

Seasons Trace

Seasons Trace-2019The community restored a stormwater sediment basin and created a proper landscaped perimeter by installing native plants around the embankment and removing debris. This improved basin will help the neighborhood more effectively control the storm water by protecting the surrounding properties and roadways and will reduce pollution run off.

The Point at Jamestown

Placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community by paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place. Residents from the Point at Jamestown plan to install two free-standing libraries and a dog waste station in a visually appealing location where families can linger while choosing books to borrow. The neighborhood installed native perennial plants, added piping underneath the crush and run to control erosion, and refurbish the walkway. They plan to support ongoing evolution with expanded improvements over the years.

Windsor Forest

Windsor Forest-2019In order to mitigate the removal of trees along Longhill Road, Windsor Forest installed riprap to prevent erosion and placed the woodchips along the trails. Additionally, the community planted dogwoods, crepe myrtles and perennials to create a more visually appealing entrance to the neighborhood. Neighbors enjoyed coming together on this project in order to provide a stronger sense of community and pride in their common spaces.
