The city currently has a tree board and a lake board. It also previously had an ad hoc greenspace committee. The city commission has discussed dissolving the tree and lake boards and combining them into a greenspace advisory committee. 

According to the proposal, here is the mission of the greenspace advisory committee: 

“The Greenspace Advisory Committee encourages and supports best practices regarding sustainability efforts and advocates for the health and maintenance of

– a tree canopy that meets the city’s established goals,

– passive greenspaces that are beautiful and support wildlife, and

– active parks that provide amenities serve the needs of the community.”

The board would focus on the city’s tree canopy, Lake Avondale, Cobbs Creek, greenspaces and parks. 

Also on the work session agenda, the city commission will discuss the 2023 sanitation and stormwater fees, appointing the DeKalb County Election Board to conduct the municipal election in November, and an update on capital projects.
