Create an app that be added to by the public and expand the community's understanding of existing natural features. Starting with the location of trees in our neighborhoods. The City has created a parks tree inventory that identifies stormwater values and, I believe, air quality. Given the type, size, and possibly, the location these trees provide an incredible resource - both as a 'utility' and habitat. The city staff can readily provide attributes and the public can both add tree locations to the application as well as learn critical things about their neighborhood...such as what value are the trees at Normandale Park? Do they benefit the community by filtering & off-setting exhaust from I-84?
