Two Dam/Depot Pond Discussion Community Open Houses Scheduled

Fri September 3, 2021

The City of Batavia and the Batavia Park District have launched a comprehensive planning process for the Batavia Fox River Corridor intended to enhance recreational function, river ecology, cultural importance, and stewardship of Batavia’s most valuable natural resources for future generations. The first step is selecting a dam removal process and reviewing how each concept affects the Depot Pond. This month, Hitchcock Design Group will facilitate two community open houses during which Batavia residents may review and discuss these concepts further.

Be a part of the discussion and help shape the future of Batavia’s Fox River Corridor! Attend a virtual or in-person meeting to share your opinions:

The Batavia Park District engaged the consulting team of planning, designing, and engineering professionals led by Hitchcock Design Group (HDG) to develop a compelling vision for a 2-mile section of the Fox River from Fabyan Parkway to Carlisle Road, giving special attention to evaluating the function, safety, and use of the Batavia Dam and Depot Pond.
