Landscaper asks locals to stay off grass at park site

Sod has been placed on the Seventh Street park site next to the George P. Sauer Human Services Center, but landscape crews said Thursday the park should not be used for two weeks to allow the sod to set. "I need two weeks of non-traffic to let this stuff really knit," said Chris Zuschlag, of I-Design, based out of the South Routt Nursery in Phippsburg. Cones and signs have been placed around the site, formerly home to the temporary Soda Creek Elementary School dubbed "Camp Soda Creek," but Zuschlag asked residents to take extra care not to bicycle or walk on the grass until June 25.
