As a result of legislation introduced by City Council President Michael Corrigan, we have all the funding in place for the Herschel Street Reforestation Project! The bill was passed the beginning of August and now we can move forward with the next steps in this project.

We have a deadline to meet for the State funding as well as hospitable planting conditions and have set forth the following timeline:

City Funding in placeAugust 31, 2006

The final plans for the park will be available at the next neighborhood meeting.
