Project Description:  The Greenwood Hills stormwater improvements are complete and have addressed severe erosion that degraded the channel.  The project included the development of a pond, reconstruction of the existing trail, and new landscaping. A small park will be developed on the south side of the pond adjacent to NW 86th Street. Park plans are still being worked through, but residents can expect a playground feature, small shelter and fishing pier. You can see the new handicap accessible fishing pier, trail and photos from the September 15, 2015 ribbon cutting in the slideshow above.

Park Plans:  The City of Johnston and Nilles Associates held a public meeting on the park plans on April 16, 2015. At this meeting, planners received feedback from neighbors on the park plan and its design.  That feedback will be used in the park planning process. Please feel free to review the preliminary master plan (located at the top of this page) and send any comments or question to Roger Silver at Nilles Associates regarding this project. Roger’s work phone number is 515-965-0123 extension 19 or contact him by email.  The City of Johnston and Nilles Associates share the goal of making every effort to keep you informed on the future plans for this area.

Project Funding:  The Greenwood Hills stormwater improvements are funded by the Johnston Stormwater Utility, which was implemented in July 2012 to create a dedicated funding source for projects that reduce erosion, protect properties and infrastructure from flooding and to improve water quality within the City of Johnston, for more information on the stormwater utility, visit the stormwater projects page.
