Tree Removal at City Hall and Civic Center Park

Public Works Begins Tree Removal at City Hall and Civic Center Park
Posted on 01/14/2019
Starting today, January 14, New Hope Public Works is beginning to remove trees around city hall and Civic Center Park in preparation for the new aquatic facility that will begin construction this spring.

The New Hope Public Works staff agreed to step-up and take on the responsibility of the tree removal as a cost-saving measure for the city.

Of the trees being removed, 64 in total, more than half of them are ash trees, and many others are considered unhealthy/undesirable as well.

The trees will be removed in three phases. The first phase will include the trees around city hall. The second phase will include ash trees and unhealthy/undesirable trees located in the park. The final phase, which will include other park trees, will take place after the new aquatic facility and Civic Center Park projects are approved by City Council at the end of March.

Planning for new construction at Civic Center Park includes replacing the trees being taken down with new ones within the park area. The new aquatic facility and updated Civic Center Park are expected to be complete in the summer of 2020.
