The PUD has cut down at least 4 trees along South 3rd Ave at Lowell Neighborhood Park. The crew foreperson claimed they were too close to the power lines. We have been told that they will replant trees in this area. For now, it's a very sad corner to look at.
The Office of Neighborhoods is working with the Lowell Civic Association to find out why public input and citizen comment was not considered before the trees were removed.
