Perspectives: Balancing Growth With Preserving Community Character

May 24, 2018

Tallahassee has a larger tree canopy than most comparable cities. And as the state's capital it's filled with spaces that represent important moments in our history. Many would argue that's what gives Tallahassee the unique character that drew them here in the first place. But as more people are drawn to the city, more space for growth is needed.

Joining us to talk about that in the studio today are:

Mindy Mohrman Tallahassee's new urban forester.

Devan Leavins Director of Special Projects for the Tallahassee/Leon County planning office.

Historic Preservation Planner Johnathan Lammers.

Tabitha Frazier Executive Director of Leon Trees.

And Janet Decosmo who created a Facebook group “Save Historic Structures, Heritage Trees.” That group now has nearly 800 followers.
