From Linda Sanders
Friends of Gibson Creek
We are going back to City Hall this Wednesday. Fortunately the Tree Ordinance has moved up the agenda ladder to Unfinished Business Item 10a (See City Council Agenda). Since 12/3, Friends of Gibson Creek have been very busy meeting with the City Manager, communicating with council members and conversing and e-mailing members from ReLeaf, Main Street Program and City of Ukiah’s Paths Open Space & Creeks Commission. Ideally, we would like the Council to appoint a tree commission to work on tree protection using the City of Davis’ Tree Program as a model for Ukiah.
Look for Bruni Kobbe’s article in the Ukiah Daily Journal that should run before Wednesdays City Council meeting. Thanks so much to all of you who came to the last Council meeting on 12/3. It was a test of patience. I anticipate a better reception this time but one never really knows. Your support is crucial, please add your voice on the 17th.
