Another great article laying out the FACTS. Trish you have done an incredible job investigating the WHOLE situation and bringing it to the residents. The City Council must hear the community.

You have certainly done your due diligence in preparing this roadmap. The shade trees are not only an integral part of the charm and character of our Business District, they are necessary to provide some cooling shade for the 8 months of heat in Central Florida. Summers are already slower due to less tourist traffic, but if we don't provide a comfortable place to stroll, people won't shop during the summer months. Thank you Trish for continuing to educate all of us.

Mr. Driggers, you should educate yourself about flora cultivars before spreading ignorant misinformation in a public forum. While you're at it, educate yourself on GMO's and get back to me when you can substantiate anything negative about what you think you know.

My vote is to avoid all GMOs. That said, if comfort is all people are after, such may be accomplished without un-known future threat to life of all kinds by using anything that is a GMO. Personally, I've not conducted the necessary research to identify nature-made offerings, but, back to basic comfort: you could enclose the entire downtown Donnelly area and install air conditioning.

this sounds like an excellent plan..Mount Dora will be so changed by no shade trees and tall,skinny palms..People come and shop etc for the charm of strolling around..Otherwise you can go to a lot of other towns with more to offer..I want to keep amount Dora viable and desirable.
