The North Stamford Association actively participated in several planning and zoning meetings to express great concern and on occasion, direct opposition to proposals that were in direct conflict with our mission.

As previously shared, the Tree Warden wanted to remove the tree. A complaint was filed by an area resident to save the tree and shift the location of the playground. The Tree Warden offered to replace the tree with three other trees of a different specie.
Positive discussion took place at the site and City Operations Director offered to double the number of replacement trees to six. He stated that he wanted the NSA to participate in the selection of replacement trees that will be proposed by the Tree Warden. None of the participants wished to cause any delay to the construction of the new playground. The offer by the City was accepted and we can expect plantings in the Spring.
The tree provides shade for children and adults using the park. The North Stamford Association has the support of City Representatives Dennis Mahoney, Susan Nable and Gail Okun to save the tree.
