The City of Bellevue will be landscaping the area outlined above. This phase of the project (which originally started in 2014) was scheduled to follow after the recently completed asphalt overlay. The main driver for the project is removal and replacement of dead and dying street trees, this area has been losing one or two trees per year for the past decade.
The City is taking this opportunity to relocate the existing path, remove turf and planting with more attractive landscaping. Trees are currently posted for removal and replacement. Trees should be removed shortly and the landscaping will happen in early autumn.
As part of this project, the Ardmore sign (shown below) will be removed and replaced with enhanced landscaping. The sign is well past it’s useful life. If there is interest in a new sign the City does have a Neighborhood Match program that can potentially assist with funding the project.
Please let the Ardmore Community Club know if you have any questions/comments or if you are interested in organizing a sign replacement with the Neighborhood Match Program.
