Gibraltar moving ahead on Fish Creek restoration

The planning commission for the town of Gibraltar is implementing the Fish Creek plan for reforestation and creek restoration.  Chair Linda Merline says grant money has been approved through the Department of Natural Resources to help make improvements while picking up 75 percent of the $33,000 cost of the project.  She says the town is currently waiting to hear back from the request for proposals from engineering design firms. 

 

 

Fish passage and meander restoration assists in the spring spawning fish of pike and suckers.  The Town of Gibraltar Park and Lands Committee is working on invasive species like the removal of buckthorn and barberry from the creek corridor, according to Merline.
