The Friends of the Green Bay Trail cleared invasive buckthorn and poison ivy from parcels of the trail and had planned to begin its next one-acre section from South Avenue to the community garden this past January. The project has halted after a group of residents have petitioned to discuss it further since they will lose privacy to their homes. Courtesy of Friends of Green Bay Trail Facebook

Residents’ concerns have stalled the Friends of the Green Bay Trail restoration work from South Avenue to the community garden this spring. The project will be up for discussion at the next Village Board meeting Thursday, March 15. 

With the backing of more than 300 donors and $100,000 ready to invest, the Friends plan to remove a section of the buckthorn and poison ivy that has swallowed the trail and replant with native trees and shrubs.
