As part of the project, the developer proposes to dedicate approximately eight acres of land on both sides of the Clinton River to the City, which includes the site of the former Country Kitchen Restaurant.  The final use of the new open space has yet to be determined, however the existing gravel parking lot will be removed and new grass is anticipated to be added by the developer later this year.
