Mrs. Denny, representing the Elm Tree Committee, commented that
when the plan' was drawn up for the park, the Elm Tree was still
standing. When the Elm Tree was felled, the Elm Tree Committee
contracted with a sculpturer to carve some type of object from
the wood of the Elm Tree as a monument to the tree.
Mrs. Denny agreed with the Opera House Park Improvement Committee
that the benches are large now, but when the new trees
and other plantings in the park grow larger, maybe then the
benches won' t look so large. Mrs. Denny was in favor of placing
the benches in the park.
Following discussion, Councilmember Miller made the motion that Council support
the recommendation of the Opera House Park Improvement Committee to install one
bench in the park on a trial basis until September, at no cost to the Village.
Motion seconded by Councilmember Avery. Motion carried.
Mr. Chambers, Chairman of the Granville Improvement Board, mentioned to Council
at this time that the Committee has received a $1,000 donation from the Robinson
Foundation, to install new taxus bushes in the West Broadway median. He voiced
appreciation to Mr. Wince for initiating the donation.
A brief discussion among members was conducted at this time with regard to plantings
in the West Broadway median.
