Have the trees been eliminated from Millburn Avenue or elsewhere in the downtown?
Absolutely not! Quite the opposite. In fact, the number of trees and plantings will increase with Complete Streets. Over 71 new trees will be planted in the Phase 1 area alone. In working with Essex County engineering to ensure that we meet their requirements, 6 pre-existing trees were relocated – they were not eliminated. In addition, there will be raingarden storm water planters, native landscape and potted plants throughout the downtown. As part of the phase two program, the entrance to Taylor Park on Millburn Ave will also be improved and made more open and accessible to pedestrians for outdoor seating and community use. A variety of trees and other landscaping elements will also be incorporated into the phase two program.
