Brief Description

The primary goal for the overall Stormwater project is to design a major storm outfall system and water quality pond in accordance with the North Greeley and Downtown Storm Drainage Master Plan, 12th Street Outfall Preliminary Design. The City sees an opportunity for significant improvement of this area with the addition of water themed artwork. Site-specific structures, art forms, and sculptures that contribute to place making will dramatically change the aesthetics of the neighborhood and the dynamics of the space. The City desires for the pond to provide aesthetic benefit to the neighborhood, while primarily functioning as a maintainable storm drainage facility. Artwork that can be seen from the highway while not distracting drivers is preferred. Educational aspects may be included in the artwork with themes such as water quality, the history of the surrounding industrial area, the old sugar beet factory, etc.
