It seems like it just turned 2020 and it will already be about February when this newsletter finds you. As usual, a consistent theme while typing these newsletters is how quickly time passes. Luckily so far we haven’t had horrible weather this winter. So, we’ve been able to save money by not having to plow or salt the roads. Hopefully, that trend will continue and we can make it until spring without any major winter storms. However, I am sure some of the children in our community wouldn’t mind a little snow to play in.
With spring approaching, the Tree Board has let us know that so far, our city has planted 267 trees and another 14 are planned to go in the ground very soon. That is super exciting news! It truly feels like the “Re-Tree the Park Campaign” is well under way.
As I mentioned last month, Jane Ecker is stepping down from her role on the Tree Board. If you are interested in filling her position, please see the “Branching Out” feature in this newsletter to view the job description. We would love to have another citizen join the team and help keep our city beautiful and shady for generations to come!
Last, but not least, as spring and summer approaches, please be on the look out for an announcement concerning a St. Regis Park night at the Ballpark. We plan on hosting an event at Louisville Slugger Field where St. Regis Park families may come and enjoy themselves with neighbors while watching the River Bats.
Remember, the City of St. Regis Park is a great place to live. Together, we will make it even better!
Brandt Davis, Mayor
