WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A proposed makeover for Memorial Park in Waynesboro includes health evaluations for the trees that were planted along the main walkway to honor World War II veterans.
The assistance of Penn State University's forestry program will be sought, Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said.
"Let's take a hard look to see if we can trim them, top them, save them. I know we can only get a few years out of them, but let's do it," Councilman Ronnie Martin said.
Don McBride, president of the Memorial Park board, talked to the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday about the future of the park.
The near future includes applying for Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant money that would extend and repave the walkway as well as bring the equipment up to safety and Americans with Disabilities Act standards, Hamberger said.
