Public invited to discuss Jefferson Park tree removal

The community is invited to attend a public meeting on Tuesday, August 27 from 7 – 8 p.m. at Jefferson Community Center to discuss new emergency access road construction and removal of 22 white poplar trees on the edge of Jefferson Park.

Construction of an emergency access road for the VA hospital has caused root loss to 22 trees between the hospital and Jefferson Park. The trees were in poor condition previous to the construction and root loss.

The Veterans’ Administration Health Care System will fund the restoration of landscaping and replanting of trees at a 2:1 ratio when the construction project is finished.

Jefferson Community Center is located at 3801 Beacon Ave. S. For more information about the meeting, contact Michael Yadrick at 206-615-1046 or
