The construction of the Irvine Detention Pond is underway. The Town recently purchased land from the Irvine Family to construction the pond that is necessary to meet the Town’s stormwater management requirements. The old home and garage and all the trees on the property were removed to make room for a new access road off of Omro Road called Owen Lane. The pond will be substantially completed by the end of July. The excavated materials (clay and topsoil) will be left near the site to avoid the construction on Omro Road. A path is being constructed around the pond that will be connected to the new sidewalks being added to both sides of Omro Road. Other amenities, such as benches, bike racks, and even a pavilion are being considered for residents and visitors to use and enjoy. The landscaping will be completed later this year and all the vegetation will be planted in the Spring of 2022.
