Dear Hillside Federation Friends,

At the Federation’s March meeting there was a presentation on the proposed removal of 34 protected trees. The Federation supported Bel Air Assn. in rejecting the MND as inadequate and denying the permit to remove the trees.
The hearing originally scheduled for March 10 has been changed:
Friday, March 24
10:00 am
Board of Public Works
Rm 350
City Hall
Best regards,
Marian Dodge, Chairman
Federation of Hillside and Canyon Associations, Inc.

An early heads up. Thanks to Suzanne Lummis, Alison and I will be reading at Beyond Baroque on Saturday, March 18th, 8 p.m., the day after St. Patrick’s.

This is a rare sighting. Alison reads about every three years. This also marks the debut of Alison’s new chapbook, What To Do In An Emergency.
