American Gulch Plan Up For Review


The $4.7 million American Gulch Plan will bring members of the town council, planning and zoning commission and Green Valley Redevelopment Committee together Wednesday.

The plan has multiple phases and would cost a total of $4.7 million if all were incorporated into the project, Town Manager Fred Carpenter said.

The three groups will meet at 5 p.m. at town hall to review the plan, discuss and possibly take action on it, Wednesday, Feb. 26.

The plan, if approved, will redirect run-off south of Main Street to provide better flood control and more land for development. Additionally it will include 10-foot, concrete, pedestrian paths, 15-foot bike paths and landscaping.
