From an email:
I wanted to let you know about a grassroots effort we’re undertaking to stop Lafayette’s March 27 agreement with PG&E to take down 272 trees, 216 which were formerly “protected” under state ordinance. The city is accepting $536K for meridian improvements as part of the deal.
On the site, we link to a petition which has received over 200 signatures in the first 48 hours. Our goal is to raise awareness about PG&E’s plans since they refuse to release a map of planned tree removals. We also want the city to reexamine their approach with PG&E since it would create a catastrophic impact on some neighborhoods.
