Corby Pond Project
In the coming months, Corby Pond will receive a facelift through a stormwater improvement project. Led by the Public Works and Transportation Department, this project will help capture stormwater and control excess runoff in this area. The Parks, Recreation and Civic Facilities Department will be removing some trees, benches and the dock to allow more room for construction. The dock will be replaced with a floating fishing dock. The departments are working on classifying this project as a community assistance program, which helps proactively prevent and resolve flood management issues.
The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has removed all the fish from the pond and relocated them. Also, an agreement with the MDC has been created to help with fish management and enforcement. As before, Corby Pond will be stocked with fish and the MDC will enforce fishing regulations such as licensing and limits. This project is projected to be completed by summer of 2021.
