Estimated Construction Schedule: Slated to begin June, 2019 and is anticipated to be completed October, 2019.
Construction Contract Amount: $250,680
Project ID #: 2260
Description: The City contracted a certified arborist to perform a field survey of all street trees (those in the public right-of-way) in the areas affected by the fires. The Arborist Report identified approximately 700 street trees as being a potential hazard and recommended for removal. Beginning late June through October 2019, a contractor will begin removal of hazardous fire-damaged street trees in the burn scar areas, which will include grinding of the tree stumps and filling the planter strips with fresh soil. The trees to be removed will be identified by a red mark on their trunks. Project work hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday Friday.
