Congress Park Neighbors Green Team October Newsletter


The CPNGT wishes to send a big shout out to some special people who have been instrumental in getting our neighborhood green team up and running. Sadly, each of these folks is moving on, either to other neighborhoods (no!!) or on to other related projects (phew! at least we not completely losing them!). Before they go too far, we wanted to let them know how much we appreciate all they contributed and that we are happy to have had the good fortune to work together and get to know each other, at least a bit.

New’s Letter: July 2016

Earlier this month, the sunflowers at the corner of 12th and Elizabeth were ordered to be cut down to comply with city regulations requiring clear sight lines and sidewalks and a maximum vegetation height of 30″. Councilman New worked with Neighborhood Inspection Services (NIS) to find a comprise allowing the majority of sunflowers to stay while opening up the sight lines for vehicle and pedestrian safety. Many thanks to Jose Viveros, NIS Executive Director, for his assistance and support.
