Construction activity begins this month on a project that replaces existing lights at Glenmere Park in Greeley. The plan focuses on replacing outdated lights and overhead lines with new underground power and poles that replicate lighting from the early 1900s—when Glenmere was first founded.

According to Parks Planner Sarah Boyd:

We want visitors to continue using the area, however, we need the public’s help. We need visitors to respect construction equipment and barriers for everyone’s safety and so the project doesn’t see delays.

Depending on the weather, the project should be completed by June.
