Starbucks and Dublin City Council-Save Dublin's Heritage Trees!

     Dubliners will lose two of our oldest and most cherished Heritage Trees if Sutter Retail obtains approval for their recent proposal to build a Drive Thru Starbucks in Downtown Dublin, California. Sutter's application, which is currently under review, includes a request for a Heritage Tree Permit to remove both trees to make way for the future development of a Starbucks at the corner of Dublin Blvd. and San Ramon Valley Blvd.

     Starbucks is known for being a socially responsible corporation and we trust they will support our Community's desire to preserve both trees, which have become a symbol of our City's own history and heritage.  

     The trees, which are several hundred years old, contribute to the quality of our lives, and if preserved, will contribute to the enjoyment and enrichment of the lives of future generations. In l999, Dublin City Council enacted the Heritage Tree Ordinance to protect these trees and those like them. We must ensure they remain protected. 

     There are viable alternatives to the current proposal, including the expansion of a Community Starbucks' Courtyard Cafe that could incorporate our Heritage Trees into the landscape. Perhaps a 2nd story wine bar. This project could be the needed catalyst to secure Dublin's vision for a pedestrian friendly downtown and at the same time preserve Starbucks' own vision "to share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better." 

     Please sign our petition letting Starbucks and our City Council know that we want our Heritage Trees to stay and trust that they will do the right thing when it comes to our community and the environment!
