This newsletter is part of Enloe Medical Center’s commitment to keeping you informed about significant construction activity for our expansion project. Following are updates for the coming three months:
Preparing for a park at Enloe.
The park will be the final phase of the Enloe Century Project. As you may know, we already have a children’s playground in place, but we have plans to enhance the park area further. Construction should take at least five months once weather permits work to begin. Crews will follow normal working hours established by the city and development agreement. The park area will be along Magnolia Avenue, facing the hospital, between 5th and 6th Avenues.
- Plaza area build-out pending dry weather. As weather allows, no sooner than late spring, we will begin building a plaza. This will involve dirt work, truck traffic and heavy equipment. If you observe dust issues when we begin to move the dirt, please call or email Bill Seguine (see contact info below). During the construction process, the sidewalk and street parking at the south side of W. 6th Avenue between Magnolia and Arcadian will be closed for safety. As previously shared, the plaza will feature customized bricks from our donors, beautiful annual flowers, walking paths and quiet, contemplative sitting areas with low-water-use and native plants.
- Work at Enloe’s property on Arcadian Avenue. As part of the park construction, we will remove the driveway apron -- the path from the street to a driveway -- at Enloe’s yellow house on Arcadian Avenue between 5th and 6th Avenues. There has not been an actual driveway at that property for many years. As previously reported, this house will remain intact as it blends nicely with the neighborhood and provides a visual barrier to the hospital.
- Removing unhealthy, non-legacy trees. As part of the park project, some unhealthy, non-legacy trees will be removed. Some of these trees were planted because someone thought they looked nice, however today they have become unsafe or are inappropriate as street trees. Many are dropping large branches. Like many, we appreciate the beauty and value of trees, and we will continue to plant trees as part of this project. Additionally, we are still working hard to maintain low-water-use planting as well as the most efficient and appropriate irrigation systems.
This Neighborhood Newsletter
As a reminder, will continue to provide a quarterly update with this newsletter, or as needed based on any construction impacts for the park area. Once the park is complete, we’ll close out the newsletter.
While we do our best to project dates, they are subject to change due to factors including weather and permits. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact Bill Seguine, Director of Property Development and Facilities Management, at (530) 864-1322 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
