Norcross participating in trees, stormwater study

Norcross is participating in a study to see if cities can use more trees to help reduce flooding and improve water quality in lakes, ponds, springs and rivers. City officials are inviting the public to participate in the process by attending a community meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 in the Community Room of City Hall, 65 Lawrenceville St.

The meeting will be led by the Norcross Tree Preservation Board which was established to assist the Community Development Department in interpreting and enforcing the provisions of the Tree Preservation Ordinance and advise the mayor and city council on all matters related to the preservation of trees and conservation of the tree canopy within the city.
