Love where you live!
LA MESA -- The La Mesa Village streetscape project won't start in earnest until next year, but already city crews are starting to lay the groundwork.
Crews early Wednesday morning were removing one of the trees that had been one of the great wonders of the city for many years now. People wondered how you could plant trees largely unprotected amid parking spaces.
And people further wondered how motorists could be expected to miss them -- particularly after spending evening hours at some of the boulevard's watering holes.
The truth was, the trees were often hit and replaced and now, with the new street design underway, the new streetscape will not include trees that will be so exposed. It is hoped motorists will leaf the new trees alone! (Pun intended.)
