NE CHOLOKKA BOULEVARD TREE ASSESSMENT
This project included proposed sidewalk improvements along both sides of two blocks of NE Cholokka Boulevard in historic Micanopy. The town and its residents were concerned that the project might endanger the mature trees lining the street.
A certified arborist performed a tree assessment, who provided testimony before the town council and citizens to determine whether the project was in their best interest. Although the Florida Department of Transportation had approved the funding for this infrastructure improvement, the Town of Micanopy decided not to move forward with the project due to concerns regarding impacts to these trees.
