— While Sprengnether is drafting the plan, he said input from the entire city is welcome. To meet that goal, a series of public meetings about the plan will be held. The first will be at the end of October. An exact date has not been set.

“The master plan will address as many concerns as possible … (it will) deal with everybody’s concerns and will be collaborative effort with the city,” said Sprengnether.

Sustainable Saratoga has not officially collaborated with the initiative to adopt a Complete Streets policy presented to city council this past April, but may be collaborating with officials in the coming months.

Denny will be offering a program entitled Saratoga's Trees: Past, Present, and Future to be presented at the Saratoga Springs Public Library in the Dutcher Community Room on Thursday, Oct. 4, from noon to 1 p.m.
