Q. What is the reason all the trees along the pond fence on the Walmart trail were cut down? This looks horrible and depressing and has removed much needed shade. The workers from Family Tree Services told me the city hired them to removed all these trees. Why would you do the opposite of beautifying our city and trail system? Submitted 3/14/2023 by Karen Lenz
A. The City of Highland Village Drainage Division is performing maintenance of the retention pond drainage site. The perimeter fencing was becoming compromised by the overgrown vegetation and causing a safety issue in that area due to the steep grades leading down to the existing retention pond. A maintenance plan has been put together to keep the fence line clear of future vegetation growth. If you have further questions or comments, please contact the Director of Public Works at 972-317-2989 to discuss.
