It’s been an interesting year. On the surface things look pretty much the same but behind the scenes we’ve made some progress towards getting a Use Permit so we can officially host community gatherings there. It has taken us years to get to this place. Part of that long process is to get approval from different stakeholders to the submitted plan…
Did you notice the tree work done this spring & summer in our own downtown Oaks Park by Fine Tree Care? If not, it’s a sign of a job well done.
They recently donated their talented crew and took out the dead oak posing a danger to parkgoers.
While there they trimmed and checked the health of the trees in that grove. All on their own dime!They know this park well. They were one of our earliest supporters through their $50,000 gift of tree work in 2014.
The application to apply for a Grant from the 2022 Forestville Community Fund has now passed.

It was held on 5/22/22 at the Youth Park Community Room. Guess what? I taped it – last minute idea (your trusty FPA Webmaster speaking). See it here:
The main speaker was:
Stuart Mitchell, CWMS (Certified Wildfire Mitigation Specialist)
Besides the video on the home page, he also has a gallery with captions showing things like “Wood fencing is a fuse.” It’s really about protecting all the openings from embers, not necessarily replacing the roof unless of course if it is wood shake. He also says mulch is another red flag. Watch the video to be informed.
It was held on 3/30/22. You can read the summary along with a bit of video and some photos here.
Regular Board meetings are scheduled every month.
Dates: Every 1st Tuesday of the month.
Anyone interested in attending is very welcome.
