Beginning Monday, May 7 through Monday, May 21, city crews will start work to repair sidewalk along 200 Autumn Drive, which will include the removal and replacement of five Sycamore trees.
Instead of root intensive, high maintenance trees, residents will see new crape myrtles planted in the area. The new trees will not only grow in size to offer shade and natural beauty, but will also bring a less invasive root structure that will help preserve sidewalks and enhance overall pedestrian safety.
During the work, street parking along Autumn Drive will be restricted for approximately two weeks. The City of San Marcos is providing free temporary parking for affected residents at the Corky Smith Gymnasium, 274 Pico Avenue in San Marcos.
During the tree removals, sidewalk replacements and subsequent landscaping work, change in schedule will be posted to the city’s website, www.san-marcos.net. For more information, contact the city’s Public Works Department at (760) 752-7550.
