Discussion of specific items brought up by committee and Council <br />Members or introduced in the goals and objectives <br />Jean Struthers raised the issue of Edith Park planting. She did not believe all the trees should be <br />removed and also believed there could be native planting done. It was noted that although the <br />Santa Clara Valley Water District would be putting in the planting, the Town could design the <br />project. Dauber also suggested that there were other locations in Town that could benefit from <br />groups such as garden groups organizing the planting. One such location would be Page Mill <br />and Arastradero. The issue of safety was raised, however, when considering median planting. <br />it <br />May 7, 1997 <br />Adjourned City Council Meeting <br />
