would we want trees in the city? Trees are beautiful and they improve the
quality of life for people in many ways. Trees help clean the air of harmful
pollutants, trees help stabilize the land, trees help cool the hot summer
air in urban areas, tree-lined streets discourage speeding traffic, trees
provide a home for wildlife, trees are pleasant to look at and give people a
sense of well-being. Well cared for trees in parks and along city streets
make it apparent that people care about their town.
Park and Tree Board meetings are held the
Second Tuesday of the month at Maize City Hall, 10100 Grady Ave.
at 5:30 p.m.
The Mayor appoints members with the approval of the
governing body at the first regular meeting in May of each year. Members are
appointed for three-year terms. The Board consists of five members who
reside within the City limits and two "at large" members who reside within
the authorized zone of influence of the City of Maize.
Through the integration of its population into every aspect of quality education, civic improvements, community appearance, commerce and recreation, Maize shall preserve its small town atmosphere and become the best small city in Kansas.
