Less Ordinary, More Drama
Regarding the proposed Foothill Boulevard medians, Bron [Ruf] works with me and if the people directing this project would listen to him La Crescenta would have a blue ribbon project. Unfortunately the folks in charge are caught up in what an everyday designer will plant. What Bron wants to create is splendor [with] Deodar Cedrus, long lived specimens that our grandchildren will grow up with and are drought friendly. Deodars are so timelessly dramatic like our magnificent mountains – both have great strength. And just think … Christmas lights on every tree. How many communities have that?
The plants and trees that have been recommended are very typical. Please – before it’s too late – I ask the planners to listen to a longtime La Crescenta resident and landscape architect. Mrs. Woung and Mr. Gallagher should reconsider their plant selections. Think long term, think drama. This must be revisited ASAP.
