No idea. I'll ask, though.

Here is a list of native trees and shrubs being used by cities and towns in southern Ohio with success:

Aesculus parvi
Amelanchier alnifolia
Calycanthus floridus
Cornus alternifolia
Hamamelis virginiana
Physocarpus opulifolia
Viburnum dentatum
Viburnum lentago
Celtis occidentalis
Nyssa sylvatica
Quercus macrocarpa
Quercus muhlenbergia
Oxydendrum arboreum

It would be helpful if you discussed with the town officials what they want to achieve from the trees/shrubs in specific locations. I like the use of short to medium size trees because they will not outgrow their space. And the above shrubs are extremely attractive with foliage, flowers and fruit. At least the town officials will know that they have an extensive selection of native plants to choose from.

'Evergreens' to add to your list, this isn't much but...

Jack pine (Pinus banksiana)
Tamarack (Larix laricina)
Red cedar (Juniperus virginiana)
White cedar (Thuja occidentalis)

all have some tolerance.

I love your list of native plants for rock gardens, Porterbrook. I've been looking for something like that.
