The good news: Trees are being planted around our city. Well, holes are being dug up.
The bad news: Residents, particularly those on W. Beech Street, were not given proper notice of the digging/planting. I have heard this first hand from a resident who has digging going on in front of their house as I type this. Well, eventually the planters will get their act together. Glad to see the trees coming in.
A Message From The Department of Public Works
We are pleased to announce that as part of our continued recovery from Superstorm Sandy, Long Beach has commenced its citywide tree replanting program. More than 2,700 new trees are scheduled to be planted throughout the City.
As the project gets underway, we would like to remind all residents of the importance of complying with all parking restrictions posted by the Long Beach Police Department. When instructed, cars must be moved from designated parking areas to allow the tree planting effort to move smoothly and without delay.
Once again, we are happy to be delivering this exciting news and look forward to the project’s completion.
