MYRTLE AVENUE TREE PROJECT
In 2018, the Willard Tree Commission, appointed by City Council, began discussing tree replacement needs throughout the city. They concluded that the southern portion of Myrtle Avenue trees, located in the “boulevard”, needed to be replaced. The southern portion of Myrtle Avenue is often referred to as the gateway to our City, and with City Council’s blessing, the Tree Commission adopted the project to beautify the entrance. Find complete details under the Maintenance Department on this website. The Tree Commission currently has a vacancy for another member. The commission service is voluntary and interesting. If you are interested in this type of community service, please contact the City Manager’s office at 419-933-2591 for more details.
