Draft Wednesday, August 19, 2009 Minutes
Attendees: Val Cunningham, Sharon Shinomiya, Mike MacDonald, Deb Robinson
Meeting started at 7 PM. This meeting was being held in place of the planned Environment Committee garden tour which was canceled because of rainy weather during the day. It was beautiful at meeting time.
We discussed the Como Park Buckthorn Bust and if there would be one this fall. We did not know if anyone was planning one and if they were how many people they were expecting. 
Discussed creating an alley award for the alley with the best, most improved alley or one that has the best runoff control. Also discussed finding and recognizing heritage trees in the District. These would include old, unique, or significant trees.
Adjourned at 7:45 to visit Val and Sharon’s gardens.
