A Hamilton city councillor says it’s time to pick up the pieces now that Hydro One has completed the removal of trees and vegetation along its beach strip and Red Hill Valley corridors.
Ward 5’s Chad Collins says he’ll be bringing forward a landscape management plan to be paid for in part by using his area’s area-rating reserve funds.
Collins notes that plantings are needed in both areas since the clear-cutting creates erosion problems along the beach and the loss of a buffer for residents along the parkway.
The trees came down along the valley corridor earlier this week as Hydro One takes steps to guard against power disruptions.
It currently has crews cutting along its corridors throughout the province.
