The pool project is moving forward as several trees were removed this past week to make way for the expanded new area for the aquatic center. The city was notified of a study on migratory species they had to conduct as a result of the trees that needed removed at the pool site. The tree study was finished this week, according to city officials. The goal, according to Laura Bedlan, Planning and Zoning Manager for the City of Fairbury, is to ensure that the trees that need removed for the project are not crucial to endangered bird species.  Another concern for the area are the endangered long-eared brown bats that migrate through the area from June to July. According to Bedlan the bats nest in shag bark trees, which neither of the trees in question were.
