Grant Property
T
his undeveloped greenway property is comprised primarily of floodplain land. Located in a residential area off Beecher Road, the acquisition of this and neighboring greenway properties continues to build a connected corridor along North Utoy Creek. Protected by the Greenway Acquisition Project, vegetation in the undeveloped property "filters" sediments and pollutants from storm water runoff from Beecher Road and nearby residential areas, which could otherwise be harmful to the creek. This acquisition provides an example of how small property owners can make a difference by protecting streams in their own neighborhood.
