In August 2011, the DMV, without notice, removed 14 trees located along the creekside and in the parking lot on Miles Avenue. The community was outraged, and the DMV agreed to work together with the community to restore the area. True to their word, the DMV has replanted beautiful trees in the parking lot and began working on a creekside plan. Now, FROG, in coordination with DMV Neighbors Association and local residents, has finalized a creekside restoration plan and submitted it to the DMV, with the hope that it can be implemented as soon as possible.
An original plan for the creekside was prepared and presented to the community by the DMV in early 2012. Afterward, FROG retained MIG, the firm who initially developed the greenbelt, to modify this plan to better reflect a restoration design desired by local residents, Farmer’s Market patrons, and the community at large. As a result, this restoration plan reflects the character of the surrounding areas and restores the creekside to create an urban green space that can be cherished by the community, the DMV and its patrons.
