Trees over hanging the sidewalk should be trimmed high enough to allow safe passage for pedestrians and bicyclists.

It was a beautiful day to watch some incredible tennis from ATP level professionals and top collegiate players all with great live music. Both spectators and the players had a great time. Special thanks to my CDDIII board for approving and the tennis club staff and academy helpers for all their hard work.
