Update: City Council Amends Landmark Tree Ordinance

A public hearing was held at the City Council business meeting on Tuesday, August 14 for the landmark tree ordinance (2018-25). During the meeting, Council unanimously passed a motion to amend the ordinance, so that a permit to remove a landmark tree is approved by the Planning Director instead of the Council. An ordinance to change the permit approval authority will be discussed at a City Council meeting soon.

Additional tree regulations are proposed in Ordinance 2018-19. This proposal includes a new “exceptional tree” category to replace the landmark tree ordinanceThe City Council discussed Ordinance 2018-19 at its meeting on August 14 and will continue the discussion on September 4.
