New Trees and Streetscape Need to Be One Result from Park Morton Redevelopment

In reviewing the plans for the redevelopment of Park Morton — especially the plans for the site on Park Road and Morton Street — one of the amenities that we really need to be a result of the effort is a better streetscape and street trees on Park Road. Park View has many streets that contribute to a significant tree desert in the heart of the community. This includes the 600 block of Park Road. In walking around Park Morton over the weekend, I was reminded of just how harsh the streetscape is on Park Road. Pushing the sidewalks back from the street to create room for street trees should be one of the many improvements that we can achieve through this project.

As you can see from the photos below, the area along the south side of Park Road is currently without trees and is uninspiring.
