Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Custom Landscape Contractors, Inc. for the installation of 617 street trees throughout Columbus.

Background: This project will be installing trees in Northland, Clintonville, North Linden, Southside and Southeast areas through the Mayor’s Green Initiative to help replace tree species that have been removed throughout the city due to tree mortality. The new tree plantings will represent a diverse species of trees selected specifically for each planting location. It takes into consideration the specific site restrictions that each location has in an effort to replace some of our lost Urban Tree Canopy and reduce storm water run-off in the area while not interfering with nearby utilities or structures.
