On Nov. 11-16, 2020, two trees at the front of Farmington View Elementary School are going to be removed. In their place, we will be renovating the dropoff area to increase vehicle queueing.
While they have been with the school for decades, the trees have long posed safety concerns and ongoing maintenance issues: (1) their roots are breaking up the parking lot/dropoff area, creating growing cracks and ridges; and (2) danger of falling branches and limbs. Their removal would alleviate these concerns and reduce the risk of damage to people and property.
The renovated dropoff area will not only allow more queuing at the front of the school for dropoffs and pickups, but also improve vehicle and pedestrian safety.
