West Raye Street Vegetation Management Plan


The following Plan is the outcome of three years of public input and citizen interest in the removal and trimming of trees along a slope of Magnolia Boulevard known as the Raye Street Bowl. The impetus of this Plan was a tree removal for view permit applied for by adjacent property owners. Significant public input and comment led to the revision of the plan by Parks Department personnel. This plan will address slope stability concerns and view enhancement through an application of current Department policies and management objectives. The Plan developed will be used as the foundation for a permit to be let to the original applicants.
