Another one bites the dust

According to Chat Cafe facebook group, these trees were leveled today to make room for an "extended-stay hotel."  This project is south of Home Depot, and south of the cemetery near the almost completed Hampton Inn.    Photo credit:  Julie Meghj

City Code regulating tree retention

To inquire, comment or complain email the City Ombuds. at  or attend the 7:30 pm meeting on Tuesday, Nov 1st, City Hall  and comment or complain directly to the Council and Mayor -- you'll have 4 minutes.

The City's "Project Viewer"  ("Woodspring Suites")

The owner of this land has every right to build his project as long as he follows the City's tree retention and building codes.

However, I 'm still appalled the City approved the clear-cut of ALL 1000  trees on the Group Health site.  And, I was surprised Council member Kim Allen, a land-use attorney, didn't openly represent the people prior to the clear-cut. It's my understanding she campaigned specifically about her expertise and voice on these issues.  Comments are welcome.

Trees - who needs them, right?

They just take up space we want to pour concrete.

Besides, we can just plant new ones that will grow back in 25 to 50 years.
