At the end of November, the public will begin seeing changes at the old Niven Nursery site, now know as the Rose Garden. The New Home Company has submitted applications for permits for phased construction of the Rose Garden Project. The initial phase involves clearing and grubbing of the site, removal of trees, and demolition and removal of existing structures. The City of Larkspur is currently preparing to issue Demolition and Heritage Tree Removal permits for this initial phase of site development project. According to the New Home Company, demolition and tree removal work will commence by the end of November or early December and should be completed in February of 2012.
