A dirt berm will be placed along most of the north side of the property and much of the west side. There will also be trees planted on the north property line to block views, as well as a fence. The detention ponds are dry, and when they do fill with water following a storm, will drain within 12-24 hours. The requested fence will help keep people off the county's property.
It is impossible to block every view of the jail from every angle to the northwest and west side of the property. However, the jail will be constructed to look like a run of the mill industrial or logistics building that you would see in any business park in Allen County.
