The Cape Charles Town Council will hold a public hearing on Thursday, January 18, 2024 at 6:00 pm in the Cape Charles Civic Center, 500 Tazewell Avenue, to receive comment on the proposed multi-year Master Tree Plan for the Cape Charles Historic and Harbor Districts.
The proposed plan is available for public review on our website at www.capecharles.org under Agendas and Minutes/Town Council. This item will be brought to a vote during the regular meeting which follows the public hearing.
This proposal by the Cape Charles Tree Advisory Board (TAB) includes a multi-year plan for the purchase, installation, and maintenance of additional tree canopy in the Cape Charles Historic District and Harbor. Year One utilizes the current budget of $10,000 and is slated for spring 2024 planting. Year Two assumes a Town budget of $10,000 and the possible receipt of a $10,000 matching grant. Years Three and Four include additional installation of canopy and understory trees throughout the Historic District and Harbor Park.
