Special Meeting Monday May 2, 2016

The Alamo Square park closure is currently scheduled for 5/10.

Because no new trees are in the current Rec and Park project budget, one of our ASNA board members, a licensed landscape architect, created a “reforestation” plan that could be planted while the park is closed for the other work Rec and Park has budgeted.  ASNA has developed a plan to replace the nearly 60 trees we have lost in the last four years due to age, decay and storms.

The ASNA board pledged to support implementing the tree planting plan with ASNA funds while the park is closed for irrigation construction.

According to our by-laws, the general membership must approve any expenditure over $5k. Therefore, we need to hold a special meeting for ASNA members to vote on this issue.

The meeting will be held Monday, May 2 at 7pm at 1660 McAllister St. Please mark your calendar and plan to join us!
