Elizabeth Noble also gave an overview on the Greenway Fields Tree Survey that was completed by a Greenway Fields Tree Committee.

Joseph Cherrito and Elizabeth Noble received the official resolution awarding Greenway Fields Homes Association the Gold Designation for the KC Green Neighborhood Program. Elizabeth Noble provided three copies of the book,One Hundred Years’ Journey: The Greenway Fields Neighborhood, to the Mayor and the 6th District Councilmen.
