Point Pleasant Beach Shade Tree Commission Meeting Minutes

Present: Elaine Hennessy, Anne Lightburn, Clem Bremer, Pete Ritchings and Peter Renner
Absent: Council Liaison Tom Vogel
Anne Lightburn called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm. Minutes from the November 7th meeting approved as submitted.
The commission discussed Brave New World’s intent to forfeit their bond in lieu of planting seven removed trees at their location. It was felt that council pressure was needed and Anne will draft a memo to the council requesting their passage of a resolution to encourage the owner to replant seven trees.
Peter Renner will make a request to Chris Riehl that the $3,000 received for consultant work on the Forest Management Plan be transferred to the Shade Tree Trust Fund.
Peter Renner reported that Elaine Petrillo was in agreement to replant trees where home owners have not replaced trees in the time frame specified in the ordinance. Many properties are well over that deadline. In particular Peter will look at 401 Arnold to check the street lawn size for an appropriate replanting.
The commission discussed and approved the revised tree list for distribution to property owners when removing and replacing street trees.
The commission agreed to the Masonic Lodge planting a third tree, American Holly, to comply with their removal permit.
Anne provided a draft of trees for spring planting on Arnold Ave. Four trees will go in existing spots where trees were removed in 2016 and three are in spots devoid of trees.
Anne will draft a memo to Elaine Petrillo requesting that the property owners of the Laundromat at 603 Arnold Ave. replace two trees that were removed without a permit and repair the hazardous sidewalks.
The commission approved transferring any remaining 2016 budget funds to the Shade Tree Trust Fund.

Meeting adjourned 7:45 pm
