Home on University Drive with Redwood Tree - Liemieux Project

Dear City Council,

Although we supported this project that would have involved removing a very nice tree from an unfortunate location in the middle of a lot we recognize the right of neighbors to oppose it on aesthetic grounds.

WE DO OPPOSE YOUR DECISION OF PAYING FOR AN ARCHITECT TO DEVISE AN ALTERNATE PLAN. This creates the precedent that if one wants free architectural plans simply suggest that your new home or remodel requires the removal of a heritage tree.

It is neither appropriate nor can the town afford to fund private enterprise projects. Your solution will please no one.
