A neighborhood meeting was held last fall to discuss the work that will be undertaken as part of this project. Questions were brought up at this meeting in connection with the number of trees that would be removed. As a follow-up, we invite you to attend a public neighborhood meeting at which project staff will present updated information about which trees will be removed and proposed planting of new trees.
