committee to recommend to the co chairs and advisory committee, the membership
structure and coordinate major fund raising events.
Project and Design Committee. It is the goal of this committee to help design projects, for modeling
purposes that can be duplicated in other areas of city. It is also the
responsibility of this committee to help the advisory committee prioritize
projects such that they reach all possible stakeholders.
Committee. It is the goal of this committee, once a
project has been developed and prioritized, to coordinate volunteers to assist
in the technical area of preparation and planting, as well as volunteers to
design a maintenance plan that can be carried out to insure the project lives.
