The mature trees that currently line Main Street are an integral part of the beauty and character of Nashua's downtown. Two blocks of beautiful, healty, mature trees were cut down as part of the ongoing sidewalk program leaving those blocks barren and uninviting. The remaining two blocks of trees need to be protected.
Prior to the sidewalk repair project there had been no reports of significant problems caused by the mature trees. The decision to remove the trees was not adequately publicized and public comment was not sufficiently considered. The Board of Public Works needs to listen to the public who now are becoming increasingly vocal about the devastation being made to Main St.
We the undersigned request the Board of Public Works to vote against continuing this misguided approach and for them to modify their future downtown improvement plans. It is not too late to do what is right. Respect Nashua's rich history. Save the trees on Main St.
