Paver Construction

Demolition started today on a paver replacement program. The trail will be under construction this week in the paver pod areas east of Hillcrest and south of the JCC. New engraving should be completed by mid-November, with the engraving text being identical to existing pavers. We will update everyone regarding a timeline for paver pod replacement west of Edgemere.
