2008 Greenspace Report

WEST HAZEL STREET (EMERITUS) has been an active Community Greenspace group for four years. The street has seen excellent work in both curbstrips and front yards, leaving an impressive display full of color, variety, and very well-maintained beds and yards. The group works hard each year to keep their work well-managed by trimming trees, weeding, and adding more plant diversity to the street, all of which is highly evident from just a brief stroll down West Hazel. Each summer a dedicated core works to keep West Hazel looking just as fresh and new as it did when it was first planted.
