Vision Management Plan

Master Plan
The Urban Forestry activities for a five-year period are identified in the Urban Forest Management Plan (UFMP). The UFMP is coordinated with the Comprehensive Plan for the City of Lewiston. The implementation of the UFMP is accomplished by allocating resources (workforce and funding) in an annual work plan. Accomplishments are reported quarterly with program adjustments made annually.

Following is an outline of the contents of the Urban Forestry Program Management Plan.
