Cyclocross tree repair bill still unpaid

Thursday, March 26, 2015 by Audrey McGlinchy, KUT

The Austin Urban Forestry Program says it is negotiating with the organizer of January’s Cyclocross event at Zilker Park to ensure USA Cycling bears the cost of restoring 57 trees damaged during the races. At the first meeting of the Open Space, Environment and Sustainability Committee, Chair Leslie Pool emphasized the importance of finalizing that agreement soon so repairs could get underway before the summer months, with the season’s increased influx of people to city parkland. “It’s not just the money and it’s not just the willingness to make the repairs, but it’s how quickly they’re done,” she said.
