As part of the project, seven trees, which are at the end of their lifespan, will be removed. This certain type of tree is also damaging sidewalks and causing drainage issues. In some places, the tree removal also allows for the installation of ADA ramps, as well as new siting and alignment for the sidewalk and storm drains.
The trees will be temporarily replaced with large, 3-foot diameter pots filled with plants. In 2015, the Olde Town Vitality Task Force recommended developing a streetscape plan for our downtown. The community will influence the new streetscape plan (with outreach beginning this fall) and determine what types of trees or landscaping will replace the removed trees.
