Annually since 1997 the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board has evaluated applications from neighborhood and community groups, sports organizations, service clubs, and individuals wishing to invest in a project within the park system. The board’s recommendations are then presented to the council for final approval. The $25,000 that the council has usually budgeted each year for the NPG Program has been used to fund a wide variety of projects. (See the attached list of past sponsors and their projects.) Along with whatever city funds are approved, project applicants are required to contribute a matching amount in cash and/or the value oapprovedPass Action details Not available
17-4744 1  Agenda ItemADDRESSING APHID INFESTATION COMPLAINTS WITHIN THE URBAN FOREST COUNCIL STRATEGIC INITIATIVES ADDRESSED: Preserve and enhance neighborhoods Address quality of place issues Provide sustainable water quality and environmental infrastructure CITY ATTORNEY: N/A SUMMARY STATEMENT: In 2012, City Council approved the Tree Board’s (a.k.a. the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board’s) recommendation to suspend chemical applications to control aphids in city birch trees and to pursue a birch tree removal and replacement plan. At the time of this recommendation there were 924 birch trees within the city limits and it would take 10 years or more if the city were to eliminate the birch monoculture that exists along city streets. The recommendation from the department was to reduce the number of birch trees to reach a “tolerable” level of infestation complaints rather than removing all of the trees without an evaluation period. The recommendation included focusing on areas that historically have had the greatest numbers of aphid complaints. In 2013, City Council approved Ordinance approvedPass Action details Not available
