Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


Extreme Green Winners

Last night's workshop took an unusual direction. After a discussion of the impact of a recent state Supreme Court decision on the standards to apply to variance decisions, the entire City Council drove over to the home of Michele and Michael Tibideau, to inform them that they had won the Extreme Green Makeover contest. Their front yard will be receiving a $15,000 landscaping makeover, installing environmentally friendly features such as stormwater management, native plantings, etc.

Local TV station Kare11 was on hand to record the event; there was a short piece about it in their 10 PM news program, and a blurb is on their website.

Congratulations to the Tibideaus, and thanks to the sponsors who funded the prize and the judges evaluated all the applicants!
