Planning is underway in Clintonville for the development of the Seven Maples Nature Area, which consists of just over 17 acres of land donated by Lynne Simpson.
She had donated the land to the city, located on 13th Street after her home was destroyed by arson in 2015.
Right now, the city is asking for residents to provide their input by taking on online survey, or by picking up a paper survey at city hall. The results of the survey should be made available in August or September.
As part of the agreement, the donation is for nature preservation, such as fishing, hiking, biking, playgrounds, a dog park and disc golfing. Motorized equipment is prohibited.
