We often get photographs from our Bungalower readers of things that are happening around town, and we have started featuring them on the site in a series called Eyes on the Street, in honor of our hero Jane Jacobs.
The above photo was sent to us by avid Bungalower reader, Jim Hobart, along with a request to look into what the City had planned for Dickson Azalea Park, where the sign was installed.
According to City of Orlando’s Press Secretary, Cassandra Lafster, three Baffle Boxes are about to be installed in the Greenwood Drainage Basin between Thornton Park and Lake Lake Greenwood. Baffle box is something that improves water quality by removing excess sediments and nutrients before they reach the lakes.
The first box will be located at Central Boulevard, where the creek in Dickson Azalea flows into Langford Park. The second box will be at Hampton Avenue, just to the east of Langford, and the third will be along the southeastern bank of Lake Greenwood.
Baffle box installation will occur within City park property and will not require any road closures. It will cost $417,000 from the Stormwater Utility Fund to complete.
