The review process for the City’s Urban Forest Master Plan continues. So far, it hasn’t gone well. Promises have not been kept. The City has failed to acknowledge, much less incorporate residents’ wishes, in the plan and the war on palm trees continues. But perhaps if residents persist, the City will finally listen.
The Urban Forest Master Plan Task Force will continue its deliberations on the draft plan tonight at 6:30 pm at the MLK Jr. Auditorium at the Santa Monica Main Public Library (601 Santa Monica Blvd). Public input welcome.
It will also be discussed October 10 by the Landmarks Commission, 7:00pm, Council Chambers, October 17, by the Task Force on the Environment, 7:00pm, Ken Edwards Center, Room 103, October 20, Recreation & Parks Commission 7:30pm Council Chambers, October 26, Urban Forest Master Plan Task Force, 6:30pm MLK Jr. Auditorium, Main Library, November 2, tentative, Planning Commission, 7 pm, Council Chambers, November TBA, Urban Forest Master Plan Task Force, 6:30pm, TBA.
