City simplifies tree ordinance review process

Friday, February 3, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Starting Feb. 10, the city is making it a little easier on applicants working their way through the residential plan review process. Before, residents proposing a new construction that would remove a regulated tree, affect its critical root zone or significantly prune its canopy were required to file a separate Tree Ordinance Review Application and pay an associated fee. That redundancy has been eliminated, and the tree components will be folded into the residential plan review process – no need to go through additional bureaucracy.
