North Davis Riparian Greenbelt: An Urban Greening Project
The North Davis Riparian Greenbelt project intends to "green" a stormwater channel in north Davis by replacing weeds with drought-tolerant native plants, establishing trees to shade the channel, and creating educational areas to learn about native plants and sustainable landscape management. Funding for this project is provided by the Strategic Growth Council's Urban Greening Program, funded by the voters of California via Proposition 84. Project objectives and partners are at this link.
Upcoming public meetings and discussions include:
- May 21: The Davis City Council will consider the recomendation of the Open Space and Habitat Commission at a regular Council meeting. This item is scheduled for 8:35 pm. The staff report on this project is available at this link.
The presentation by project partners from the April 17th City of Davis Habitat and Open Space Commission Public Forum is available at this link. During the meeting, the Commission unanimously voted to recommend approval of the project by City Council.
The specifics of the project have been determined based on community input, City maintanence needs, and habitat value. We welcome your input!
