  1. Please don’t remove the trees along Front Street. You will be changing the charm of the area. In the summer, a provide shade which brings a cooler spot to rest for the tourist. Are city officials out to do away with the things that make Natchitoches special as improvements are made. Because of back problems & can’t manage long walks or stairs. Will I be able to enjoy the riverbank with the shade from big oak & magnolia tres? I love Natchitoches, the charm, the beauty, the reminders of yesteryear. Please don’t change our beloved city.

  2. Hate to see any of the beautiful trees on Front St….or the riverbank ever be destroyed…they A BIG PART OF THE CHARM OF THIS AREA OF MY HOMETOWN NATCHITOCHES😢😢😢😔😔😔
