[ARCHIVED] SAVE THE DATE: Public Input Meeting for development of City’s Urban Forest Management Plan


The City of Sun Prairie Parks, Recreation, and Forestry (SPPRF) Department is currently seeking public input on the management of its publicly-managed urban forest.  SPPRF invites its community members to a public input meeting on Thursday, November 16 from 4:30 to 5:30 PM in Council Chambers at City Hall located at 300 E Main Street, Sun Prairie, WI.   This project is made possible through funding from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The meeting will consist of a brief presentation of the draft plan and then allow for questions, comments, and other feedback.

The result of this process will be the development of a management plan that will help the city strategically manage its urban forest.  It will guide the City's forestry division towards making data-driven decisions that will have a positive impact on Sun Prairie's urban forest. This comprehensive plan will outline the objectives, policies, and actions necessary for effective urban forest management. It will also include a range of recommendations and best practices covering tree planting, maintenance, preservation, storm response, and sustainable practices. Serving as Sun Prairie's proactive roadmap for managing the urban forest, the plan ensures that the community's trees are healthy, safe, and beneficial to all residents. Through active community engagement, the City aims to ensure it aligns with the unique needs of the Sun Prairie community.
