Several roadways in Bryan will soon be safer for motorists during heavy rainfall, thanks to a grant the City of Bryan recently received from the state Flood Infrastructure Fund.
Bryan achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements:
- A tree board or department
- A tree care ordinance
- An annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita
- An Arbor Day observance and proclamation
Bryan residents and visitors can enjoy the vast number of trees and natural elements in one of the city’s 50+ parks and along more than 37 miles of trails in the community.
“Everyone benefits when we make smart investments in Bryan’s urban forest. Trees bring shade to our homes, beauty to our neighborhoods and economic, social and environmental benefits to the entire community,” said Linda Cornelius, Bryan’s Parks & Recreation Director.
