Signe Nielsen, a consultant on horticultural design for Lincoln Center, presented a plan on Monday night at a Community Board parks committee meeting for Damrosch Park, the park in Lincoln Center that has held events like Fashion Week and the Big Apple circus. A group of neighbors settled a lawsuit with the city last year allowing the park to be restored to community use and booting Fashion Week from the space other events will still be held there. As part of the settlement, the city and Lincoln Center agreed to plant new trees and other plants in the park — 56 trees had previously been cut down — critics contend that the city cut them down to make way for the events, while the city and Lincoln Center contend that the trees were dead or posed a health hazard. The current plan involves planting new types of trees in the space, including Zelkova, a narrow tree often used in urban environments, for the North Planter section, which is currently devoid of any plant life. By the Kiley Planter upper right in the drawing , there is planned to be a species called Crepe Myrtle, which bloom in a bright pink color.
