Development of proposed Capitol projects would require removal of 108 mature trees and likely cause significant damage to an additional 55 mature trees. Construction of the underground facilities will limit root growth and stability of future trees. Many of the Capitol Park trees are irreplaceable.
Stop the billion-dollar demolition and new Annex expansion Project.
Restore the historic Capitol Annex and utilize the “Swing” Building for additional office space for a less costly, permanent solution.
Since restoration would not exceed the footprint of the existing Annex, this alternative would not impact sacred ground and cultural resources of Tribal Communities.
This alternative would protect and preserve irreplaceable trees in Capitol Park.
