The City of Palmdale is inviting residents to attend a community outreach meeting on Tuesday, June 11 from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Palmdale Oasis Park Recreation Center, 3850-A East Avenue S, to gather input on the City’s grant application for Avenue S Environmental Enhancement and Urban Forestry project.
The Avenue S Corridor is a major arterial that connects the Antelope Valley Freeway and Highway 138 and is heavily travelled by both the local community and regional users. The City’s application to the California Natural Resources Agency would include the planting of over 700 plants and shrubs, in addition to over 100 trees of a variety of climate-appropriate species, which will represent a significant expansion of the urban forest in the project area along Avenue S, from approximately 600 feet west of Pond Avenue to approximately 600 feet east of Dawson Drive.
This project will enhance the Landscape Maintenance District areas and create a more welcoming pedestrian route, leading to improved health and quality of life outcomes for residents living in the area. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting and provide input.
For more information, please contact Landscape Superintendent Steve Montenegro at 661/267-5338.
