The partially city-owned lake will get perimeter fencing at a cost of nearly $28,000, city council decided Monday.
The council has held numerous discussions regarding the development of what is now known as “Lake Friendswood” – a private lake in south Friendswood that has been identified as a possible addition to the city’s park lands. Nearby residents, however, continue to say trespassing and noise, especially during evening and night hours, have been a problem.
During it’s regular meeting Monday, the council voted to contract with Gulf Fence Company for perimeter fencing for the area.
The lake lies southwest of Friendswood Drive, between Windemere Road and West Viejo Drive.
The city now has solid plans to develop the 45-acre lake into city green space, with fishing and boating piers, trails and a pavilion listed among improvements. Development of the lake as park space is scheduled for the first round of bond funding, at a cost of $500,000.
