Meeting Summary 5/11/10May 12, 2010
6pm – overview of outline for Central City Plan update (CC2035). Here’s the briefing document (PDF, 0.6M)
6:30pm – working through more of the details of Tree Plan policy. I hope to publish my thoughts on the progress of the plan later in more detail. But we spent more than 3 hours on it…
An interesting question has come up about Norway Maples, which are on the invasive species list (they re-seed so effectively that they crowd out native species, but are otherwise wonderful street trees). These trees are used extensively in Ladd’s Addition and we received testimony that prohibiting replacement of existing trees that die with Norway Maples would have a significant impact on the character of the historic district.
