The Maple tree just west of the John Gibson House is slated for removal. The developers have requested destruction of the tree to allow for construction of a ramp as part of the 3-story addition to be constructed at the back of the building. The tree in question is a 25 year old Norway maple that is 58 cm in diameter.
The application is particularly upsetting since an information package released from the developers (LOFT) in 2009 stated that no trees would be destroyed as part of the construction.
