The Wethersfield Village Improvement Association’s Mission:
The Wethersfield Village Improvement Association is an historic group. For more than 100 years it has been devoted to the cause of enhancing the local streetscape. It now takes on the essential cause of renewing, preserving, and restoring the public tree stock in town.
One of its projects will be to inspire the planting of 375 new trees. It will be a symbolic connection to next year’s 375th anniversary of Wethersfield.
With new attention being paid to global warming, more is becoming known about the negative environmental impact of treeless streets. Street trees should be the preferred design. It should not be considered a luxury item — tolerated by traffic engineers and city administrators.
We welcome new members to carry on the pro-active work of this group.
