Message from Supervisor LaFountain:
DPW crews continue to remove dead, diseased, and downed trees from the perimeter of the property along Whalen and Clark Roads. Once this task is finished we will continue addressing hazardous trees in the interior of the property.
A dumpster is on site as we clear trash and brush from the Clark House and adjacent buildings. Plantings are being spruced up, stumps being ground out and regular mowing of the Clark House grounds is underway. Weather permitting, we will also attend to roadside mowing along Atlantic Ave. in the coming week.
DPW is weaving Shadow Pines projects into their traditional seasonal work and will be on-site as weather and schedules permit.
As I have stated before, during this cleanup period the public is not allowed on any portion of the property–signs stating this have been placed on the property. We will get the word out when tree maintenance is complete and it is safe to enjoy designated portions of the property. Our focus is on preparing the former front nine for public use.
Safety is our priority. Thank you for your patience as we perform this necessary work.
