The new I-74 Bridge in downtown Bettendorf includes shade-tolerant landscaping and lighting under the elevated concrete approaches.

Palmer Hills landscaping.

The new 9th hole on Palmer Hills Golf Course should protect drivers on Middle Road from errant drives. The new berm and over a dozen new evergreens should also help to block the view of the road to golfers.

New sculpture near Family Museum

A new sculpture was recently spotted near the Family Museum. The Sculpture adorns the end of the parking lot, and appears to represent the Earth, Sun and Moon, being held by green hands. What this means, I'm not sure, but it is interesting to look at. If anyone knows more about this sculpture, please comment and let us know!
