in addition to the proposed fruit trees just plain plant trees on neighborhood streets, residential and commercial alike, e.g., Norcross, Wilder esp. in vicinity of Morey School, Bridge Street; streets with sidewalks, and streets without sidewalks. Perhaps their care in the critical first few years could be offered to locals for “naming” rights.
The local streets wouldn't look so barren. Neighborhoods would have some natural beauty and the softening effect of trees. If someone is given "right" to care for trees, pride may enlarge to more of the surrounding space, and we neighbors may get to know each other and care.. In the future when they acquire size, and the city has more money (hope so), benches can be placed strategically throughout the city, under trees for neighborhood gatherings.
