What happens to the ash trees in Harrisonburg.
Public Works is hosting workshops in City Hall to provide resources on the Harrisonburg Conservation Assistance Program (HCAP).
Citizens with concerns about drainage issues that have caused or are threatening damage to private properties may utilize the Drainage Improvement Program to request City-funded improvements.
The City will be hosting a volunteer tree planting opportunity at Northend Greenway. Members of the community are invited to participate in the tree planting event.

32 trees were planted by city staff and volunteers in Heritage Forest and Gardens (along West Market St by Thomas Harrison Middle School).
Volunteers and city staff planted 20 trees at Thomas Harrison Middle School on October 4, 2018. The trees were planted along the sidewalk as well as the road leading up to the middle school and will provide shade, stormwater uptake, and habitat for native fauna.
The community is invited to learn about the health and extent of Harrisonburg’s urban forest canopy, review strategies for best management of the canopy, and find out how trees play a role in reducing stormwater runoff.
Citizens are invited to attend the open house at Thomas Harrison Middle School to learn more about the stormwater projects and how the school will use stormwater utility fee funds to improve local water quality and meet federal and state requirements.
The Environmental Performance Standards Advisory Committee provides guidance and recommendations to City Council in the establishment of environmental performance standards for public development and redeveloipment projects, and will encourage the private sector to meet these standards as well.
