In 2012, a house was demolished at 3578 Silsby Road, and Mayor Infeld wrote to the neighbors asking for input on plantings and other feedback that would help dress up this gateway point into the City. Feedback was collected and in 2016 a landscape architect developed a conceptual plan for what this quiet pocket park would look like. The conceptual plan is shown below. In 2016 the City also applied for a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to make this dream a reality. In October 2017, the City was awarded NatureWorks funding, and the project will move forward.
