July 13, 1962 - Park board okays trees inside walks: The Green Bay Board of Park Commissioners voted Thursday night to send to the City Council next Tuesday a recommendation for planting trees inside the sidewalk on three city streets.
The streets involved are Raleigh Street, Thorndale Street and Langlade Avenue.
Under a 1958 ordinance, the city has an eight foot easement to plant trees inside the sidewalks rather than on the parkway. The trees, which would be planted by the city forester, would be assessed to the individual property owners.
Several objections were raised Wednesday night at a hearing before the Park Board against planting the trees inside the walk, but the board viewed the streets involved during their special meeting Thursday, and voted to recommend the original planting proposal to the Council.
The next step is for the Council to hold a public hearing, after which aldermen will either approve or reject the planting plan.
