TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
It has been a debated
topic for months in a south Toledo neighborhood. The trees on Cherrylawn
started to come down Tuesday.
It's part of a project
that costs $1.6 million, and includes a new street, new sewer and water lines,
and work to create better curb appeal. It also includes the removal of about
130 trees to put in sidewalks, which are needed for the project to receive
state funding, and to improve pedestrian safety.
Some residents are okay
with the work, but a few are very unhappy.
"I just think destroying
the trees is horrid," said Sandra Kinker. "Putting in a new street we did not
need, putting in sidewalks which we don't want, and killing the trees is – I can't
even find an adjective for it. It's just devastating, it's awful."
When the project is done,
new trees are expected to be planted.
