Feasibility Study Update
 
Article Image
Last Thursday, December 10, 2016, AMPC presented the Memorial Park Walkways Project Feasibility Study findings and recommendations to the City's Park Design Review (PDR) committee. The Feasibility Study addresses enhanced connectivity, tree canopy preservation and restoration of the native plant communities for the passive side of the park, on the west side of Northside Drive, commonly known as Memorial Park (see image).
 
The PDR committee reviewed the proposal and is in support of the concept for the improvements to the passive side of the park. Currently, the perimeter sidewalk plans are with the Department of Public Works (DPW) for their initial review and comment. When those comments are received and accepted by PDR, AMPC's landscape architect firm, Hughes, Good, O'Leary and Ryan (HGOR), will move forward with the construction document phase.

So what’s the big deal if that creeping ivy grows up the side of that tree?Article Image

What’s the harm in allowing that Chinese privet to take root alongside native plants? 

These and other invasive species can have devastating effects on native plant life. Brian Williams, Trees Atlanta’s Forest Restoration Manager, will present the best practices for removing these plants, while also promoting the growth of natural species and restoring native forests and greenspace.
