Shade trees are a must. Remember to be at the meeting on the 19th. Your opinion matters!!!

Pretty obvious to me, you need to plan some new trees

Maybe a few of the extra large parallel parking spaces can be turned into planters for oak trees. Palms are for the beach and they don't give us enough shade. Crap myrtles are also a cheap cop-out weed.

i love palm trees. And those 100 year old palms conveniently left out of the above pic are gorgeous!

It would be a shame if this caused this one time beautiful old charm city into a ghost town. Like so many of them are. It could not only impact business owners but it will impact residences as well if that happens. Things like this can be far reaching from an economic impact prospective! It's a shame.

I live in Dunnellon FL. I go to Mount Dora every chance I get, I just love this old town. I have been their 3 times already in the past 2 months and planing to again this month. I noticed the road work at the time I did not know what was going on. I just thought they were doing road work. It sickens me to know they are tearing down some of the history of this beautiful town. I have to agree with Dave, Jim, Amy, and Cindy we need these trees, Yes it's much easier to take care of palms then oaks for the county, but this is what sets the town apart from other towns. Not only are they taking beautiful and history from this place, they are turning it into a modern looking town. I believe this will have a great impacted on this town. We live in such a lazy generation, rather then take the time to trim Mt Dora's trees, it's easy to cut down History, Charm and heritage and what the was built around. Don't you city official think you have destroyed enough small towns already all in the name of progress. I knew that blood sucking Orlando would one day consume this town and it will look like any other suburb. So much of Florida's history has been destroyed in the name of progress. And all I can say is it truly sickens me to my core. Why don't we just doze it all under and build a thyme park and put up some high rise hotel, and maybe then Miss Mayer you will be happy another piece of Florida history gone!!!

What a shame that one of my favorite towns has been destroyed by human. One of the appeals of Mt. Dora was its comparison to being a New England town....well guess what...they don't have palm trees in New England! I guess I will stick to Winter Park where oak trees are appreciated!
