Plans for planting trees in the West 20s and West 30s neighborhood of Covington will be discussed during a meeting of Keep Covington Beautiful at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, in Conference Room II at the Greater Covington Center, 317 N. Jefferson Ave. Participants should use the entrance on West 23rd Avenue.
KCB is working to create guidelines and a prototype tree planting plan to be used as the basis for Covington’s Community Forest Master Tree Planting Plan. The project focuses on the area between West 22nd and West 29th avenues to North Columbia, between North Buchanan and North Madison streets.
Detailed studies are planned for North Monroe, North Taylor, West 24th and West 28th. Data such as existing trees, signs, overhead and underground utilities, driveways and areas used for parking will be recorded along sections of these streets.
Volunteers are needed to assist with collecting this data in March. Those interested in helping can sign up at the meeting or by contacting KCB at (985) 867-3652 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
