The city of Ellensburg, Wash. may add native, drought-tolerant plants around its renewable energy park near Rotary Park on the edge of Interstate 90.
The city approached a landscape architect who came up with different plans for the 40,000-square-foot plot.
The energy park has solar panels and a wind demonstration project.
The Utilities Advisory Committee favored the more complex of the two plans due to the greater variety of plants, but thought the cost was too much, said Bob Titus, Ellensburg’s energy services director.
According to a report submitted to the Council on Monday, the estimated cost of the plan would be $80,000.
