September 4, 2019 – Informational Meeting on Murphys Main Street Trees – District 3 Supervisor, Merita Callaway, and the Murphys Business Association invite you to attend a presentation by the Calaveras County Public Works Department on the status of the downtown trees at 6pm at the Old School House on Jones Street.  At the request of the Business Association, the County hired a consultant to assess the health of the downtown trees.  Approximately 90 trees were evaluated and, as expected, a number of the older trees will require removal, more will require stabilization work, and others will warrant ongoing monitoring.  The Murphys Business Association is committed to working with the County to create a replacement plan, plant appropriate street trees, and provide care to newly planted trees.  We know the downtown trees are a source of pride and concern to the businesses and residents of Murphys and want the community to understand how the decisions were made and what to expect as well as obtain suggestions on how to make the process go as smoothly as possible.  

Please join us at 6 pm on Wednesday, September 4th at the Old Schoolhouse on Jones Street.
