Construction Starting Soon on Storm Lake Harmony Garden Project

Construction is set to begin next week for the Harmony Garden project in Storm Lake.

The garden will be on the Public Library/Witter Gallery grounds, and construction is slated to start next Wednesday, July 17th through July 26th, weather permitting. A portion of the sidewalk and parking area in front of the library will be closed during the removal process.

Once completed, Harmony Garden will feature seven outdoor musical instruments, gaming tables, device charging stations, reading pergola, and more. The project is funded in part through a T-Mobile Hometown program. Storm Lake is one of only 25 communities nationwide to earn the grant out of more than 400 applications in the cycle.

The project will expand in the future to include a deck with built-in seating to wrap around the building to allow for outdoor classes and small performances.
