The parking lot and drive thru area have already been reconstructed, but the new changes will be to the landscape. Planners are working with contractors to put it all together.

They'll be adding spots for tall grass, fences, benches new permeable pavement. The pavement will actually soak up water when it rains, to fight off water runoff.

In addition, there will be three spots reserved for "urban gardens," a place for people to plants vegetables and other plants. An area will also be used to showcase art made by local artists.
