Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9) and volunteers are preparing to check on the greening of Lexington Road as part of the next clearing and planting set for Saturday, July 17th from 8:00am until 12:00pm.
“This is one aspect of the Green Triangle initiative we announced in May,” says Ward-Pugh. “The initiative calls for creating more viable green space and enhancing the natural landscape in the community and our volunteers have laid a very good foundation for what we are trying to accomplish along Lexington Road.”
Volunteers are planning to plant 20 additional smoketrees and 100 plugs of dwarf sumac in the area of Lexington Road between Top Hill and Cross Hill Roads. In previous cleanups, volunteers have managed to clear out invasive plants and restore the area to its natural balance of nature and stone outcroppings.
“Part of our Green Triangle initiative calls on us to be vigilant in maintaining this natural environment,” says Ward-Pugh. “I am pleased that the response to our effort has been so positive with over a hundred volunteers so far and we welcome anyone who would like to join us this time.”
Motorists need to be aware that on clean up day, one lane of Lexington Road will be blocked for safety of the volunteers.
