Protect Brentwood's Trees

If you've been following the Brentwood's e-group lately, you've likely seen a whole of discussion about protecting the trees planting in the 1990's along Arroyo Seco (and Goodnight too). The drought is taking it's toll on yards, gardens and especially our trees. Stressed trees are more prone to disease and damage -- so if you value the shade and beauty they provide, see the attached flyer (from the City's Urban Forester, Keith O'Herrin) about how you can protect this valuable asset in Brentwood (including the trees in your own yard)!

Citizen Participation Study

Jasmine Griffin-Ives, a graduate student in Public Administration at Texas State University at San Marcos, has presented this study as part of her Applied Research Project, which is required for the Master of Public Administration degree. The study is based on survey information gathered from neighborhoods in Austin. The purpose of her study was to explore how neighborhood associations view city efforts to increase citizen involvement in policy making.
