Creating and maintaining green spaces through plantings and landscaping will improve the environment, and liveability for the community.
Green open spaces and urban forests are considered key social and environmental infrastructure for a sustainable city. Landscaped spaces and corridors create visual appeal and cool our streets, homes and buildings, reduce stormwater runoff, and support physical and mental health of residents, biodiversity, social and recreational activities.
Tree planting is occurring in numerous areas where additional planting opportunities are present.
$300,000 over 12 months.
