On April 30th, Legislator Denise Ford along with Long Beach City Manager Charles Theofan celebrated Arbor Day by planting the first of many tress funded by a community revitalization grant from Nassau County Leg.Ford. Last April, the City Council approved an inter-municipal cooperation agreement with the county to use the $31,400 grant to purchase and plant the trees city-wide. Ford hoped the work would have been done last fall, but the city postponed in order to determine the best trees to buy and the best places to plant them.
