CHICO, Calif. - The Comanche Creek greenway area in Chico is getting an upgrade, thanks to a grant from the state.

The area is currently in phase two of the project, phase one helped put in a new sign at the park. Phase two will help reduce greenhouse emissions, acquiring, creating and enhancing open space.

This will include planting 110 native trees, shrubs and also wild-flower seeds.

Construction includes expanding recreational activities. Like putting in a paved pedestrian bike path, signage, benches and landscaping improvements to maximize safety and allowing more access for rangers and police.

Chico PIO, Lynda Gizzi said this phase is part of what the city has envisioned for the community for over 10 years.

"Allowing this area to be used as a park there are numerous commercial facilities in the area as well as the residential neighborhood," Gizzi said. "In that area people will be able to walk their dogs after work everyday businesses will be able to come down there for lunch people will be able to ride their bikes through there."

This next phase will also connect the Chico-Durham pathway through this area to help with commuting as well.

The funding for this phase is over $1.5 million dollars awarded by the Urban Greening Grant and the state's Natural Resources Agency.

Construction will begin in April. The Greenway project should take 70 days and should be finished by the end of the summer.
