Plan Moving Forward, We Still Need Your Help!

18 Feb 2013 by admin, Comments Off on Plan Moving Forward, We Still Need Your Help!

Friends, the General Grounds Improvements are moving forward but we still need your help!  The plan went before the Waterfront Planning Advisory Board on Monday, February 11, and passed with flying colors.  The Board members were very enthusiastic about the upcoming improvements to the pool!

But we need your support at the next stop – the Environmental Board meeting this Wednesday, February 20 (6:00 pm in City Council Chambers).  The Board has already heard testimony and public input, but had a few questions for City staff, and will vote on the plan this week.

Please be there to sign up in support!

If you can’t make it to the meeting, or even if you can, please email the Board members and let them know you support the Grounds Improvements going forward.  For a rundown on the projects involved, click on the following link (pdf):  Grounds Improvement Project Memo.

One of the proposed projects will be a renovation of the Tree Court at the main entrance, removing the barren crushed granite surface, aerating the roots of the heritage trees, adding walkways to direct foot traffic away from critical root zones and planting native plants and flowers.  The Tree Court as it currently looks is in the picture above; the Tree Court as it could be is in the adjacent picture.

These much-needed projects will make the pool more accessible, beautiful, safe and sustainable!  Please email the Environmental Board members below and let them know you want them to vote YES on the Grounds Improvements!
