Batavia Park District to host two open houses on Depot Pond and dam
The City of Batavia and the Batavia Park District have launched a comprehensive planning process for the Batavia Fox River Corridor intended to enhance recreational function, river ecology, cultural importance, and stewardship of Batavia's most valuable natural resources for future generations.
The first step is selecting a dam removal process and reviewing how each concept affects the Depot Pond.
This month, Hitchcock Design Group will facilitate two community open houses during which Batavia residents may review and discuss these concepts further.
Be a part of the discussion and help shape the future of Batavia's Fox River Corridor! Attend a virtual or in-person meeting to share your opinions.
A virtual Community Engagement Open House will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15, on Zoom.
Register in advance for this webinar at cityofbatavia.net.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
An in-person Community Engagement Open House will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Peg Bond Center.
The Batavia Park District engaged the consulting team of planning, designing, and engineering professionals led by Hitchcock Design Group to develop a compelling vision for a 2-mile section of the Fox River from Fabyan Parkway to Carlisle Road, giving special attention to evaluating the function, safety, and use of the Batavia Dam and Depot Pond.
