Save our historic Casa Linda Plaza trees from demolition!

The historic Casa Linda Plaza shopping center is scheduled for demolition/renovation by EDENS property management as of today. Plans involve replacing the original, 75yr old trees for parking spaces. This center is a staple to our community, these trees are habitat to many local wildlife, and are some of the last remaining original features to this landmark site.
We are meeting with the EDENS team next Tuesday; they have told City Councilman Mark Clayton they will hold off on tree removal until our meeting.
Our aim is to preserve these trees and allow the rest of the development to proceed forward. There is no "replacement" for a 75yr old tree- no matter how many small trees are planted. Please sign our petition, show your support, and say NO! to demolishing our beautiful trees!
“EDENS' purpose is to enrich community, and these redevelopment initiatives will be rooted in and reflective of East Dallas.”- Tom Kiler, Managing Director at EDENS.
We can't be "rooted in" if you destroy our roots!
Please save our trees from demolition. Whether its 5 trees or 50... these trees have spent years growing roots in our community, as we have as well.
Edens' mission statement is to "Enrich community through human engagement."
We ARE the community; we were not consulted or brought in to the conversation when these plans were approved. Nor were we consulted when EDENS put an end to our annual historic Christmas tree...If they're truly interested in enriching the community and driving prosperity into the spaces we CHOOSE to frequent and give business to, they will meet the needs and desires of our community.
