CONFERENCE PLANTS IDEAS FOR SYRACUSE

City Councilman Mike Jones wants to get the city involved with planting trees, planning expanded parks and getting senior citizens and youths more involved with recreation programs.

Jones attended a recent state parks and recreation convention and said the city should try to form a tree committee and celebrate Arbor Day each year.He wants to be sure the city's master plan includes quality parks.

"If we have good parks, the city will gain credibility," he said.

He'd also like to get youths equally involved in tree planting and parks.
