Check our website each Friday for Streetscape Project updates. Read on to see the schedule for this week. The Downtown Streetscape project kicked off last week with the removal of the ginkgo trees. It was tough to see the trees go, but due to the damaging roots and the odorous fruit, it was necessary to create a safe and usable sidewalk. This winter, the project will include the planting of 64 new trees in the project area. Five different species will be planted that were selected for their suitability as a street tree that will not damage sidewalks or be a nuisance to downtown patrons. Shown below is an example of the tree planting plan near Fourth Street on Main.
