Last Wednesday 5/25/05 there was a meeting of the landscaping committee at Miriam. Below are some notes I took.
8th Street Landscaping
Elms are looking good. Miriam is working with the city on attempts to get trees planted on the house-side of 8th street.
Plan for a 6 foot wrought iron fence on Highland with a rolling gate. They have contracted with MON landscaping for this work, but do not have a schedule yet. Hoped it would be done by “end of summer”.
4th Street in front of Rise building
Plan to replace sidewalk, and add trees, and similar wrought iron fence. This has also been contracted with ON landscaping for this work, but do not have a schedule yet. Hoped it would be done by “end of summer”.
Future Landscaping Plans
Since landscaping around the front/sides of main campus will wait for completion of construction, possibilities for next phase of landscaping work are the Fain building, and the parking lot on 3rd street. No decision was made as to which should be a priority. There will be another landscaping meeting in 3(?) months.
The presentation included a number of landscaping images and architectural renderings of the new building, which I thought would be nice to have available on SNA website. I asked Monica if she could provide electronic copies of these images, and she said she would look into it. I tried to followup with her, but I keep getting bounce-back emails from TMHNeighbor@lifespan.org.
