City of Southgate is looking for more park and tree board members

Southgate’s park and tree board is back.

During the Feb. 1 Southgate City Council meeting, recreation and community events council member Aileen Okura announced she had appointed three new members to the previously deactivated board.

Last year, with a few board members moving on, the board fell into inactive status. But with new members, it has been reactivated. Mayor Jim Hamberg signed off on new members Connie Torres, Mary Bridewell and Anne Bonefant.

Despite three new members, Okura said she’d liked two more people to join.

“If council members know of any neighbors who might be interested,” she said, “that would be ideal.”

Next month, the board will meet to plan the upcoming Arbor Day celebration, one of many factors that wins Southgate annual Tree City USA awards, which the Arbor Day Foundation presents to tree-friendly towns.

Since 2005, the foundation has presented Southgate with the annual award.
