Boardman official: All trees must be replaced behind Sam's
Motorists on Interstate 680 southbound near the U.S. Route 224 exit have probably noticed a large section of woods behind Sam’s Club was cleared recently.
Zoning Inspector Anna Mamone said 138 trees were removed without the township’s knowledge and her office will not release a requested sign permit for that location until all the trees are replaced.
Mamone said it appears a contractor who was going to install the signs cut the trees.
The trees were part of the original plans approved by zoning officials.
