Hello,

I am writing about a new proposed tag, alley=green_alley, and would like to have comments on the new tag.

A green alley is a service alley that a group of local residents embellish with vegetation, such as trees, vines and flowers. 

Montreal has more than a hundred green alleys that are officially recognized by the city. These green alleys are notable feature since they are clearly identified with a sign installed by the city:

A green alley is first and foremost a normal service alley, and would be identified as such when tagging:

highway=service
service=alley
alley=green_alley


I have created a proposal on the wiki:

Thanks!
