Panhandle Playground Tree Work to Begin on or Around January 22

As noted in a previous update from November 2018 (click here for that full update), we are planning to move forward to prune 2 trees and remove 5 trees in the immediate vicinity of the playground ahead of the general contractor coming on board. The reason for this timing is to minimize conflicts with the bird nesting season and to avoid associated construction delays to the playground renovation. Trees to be removed were posted with a courtesy 30 day advance notice.

We anticipate tree work to take place this month, beginning January 22 pending completion of bird nest monitoring survey to ensure no conflict. The work is anticipated to take 4-5 days. We will be closing the playground for the duration of tree work for everyone’s safety.  As much notice as possible will be provided for that via email, blog post and on site notices.  Please stay tuned for confirmation of the dates of that work

The playground renovation will include 8 new trees and lots of perennial shrubs and grasses.
