Tuesday afternoon at the Land Use meeting was a big success in the move for an Urban Forestry Commission. A few folks spoke in support of the ordinance, and no one spoke against. Ordinance 2009-174 (PDF) now moves to the full Council meeting on Monday. Supporters of the idea are organizing to show support at Monday’s meeting:
We would like to have as many folks as possible attend the 6 o’clock session to show how much community support there is for the Urban Forestry Commission. And remember to wear a green shirt if you have one, and come prepared with all the positive reasons to have this Commission in our City.
