South Side trees get funding
Payment completes 37th Avenue project
The Moran Prairie Trees Project – kicked off 10 years ago with plantings near the Regal Street Post Office – has donated $1,603 to the Spokane County Conservation District, reimbursing the city for new trees planted along 37th Avenue between Regal and Perry streets.
“Originally this area was part of the Moran Prairie Neighborhood, until Southgate was created,” said Carrie Anderson, who is in charge of the Moran Prairie Trees Project. “I’ve tried several times over the past five or six years to provide trees for citizens on Moran Prairie with this money and found no takers.”
After conversations with a major donor, Anderson said a decision was reached to pay for the new trees on 37th Avenue.
“This was the remainder of the money we had,” said Anderson. “Officially, this is the end of the Moran Prairie Trees Project.”
