ADVOCACY IN ACTION
TREE ORDINANCE IS HEARD AT PLUM COMMITTEE
The PLUM Committee heard the Protected Tree Ordinance this week, taking only public comment but not discussing the issue. BIA-LAV voiced multiple concerns, chiefly that many issues have not been rectified between Public Works and City Planning, and that this ordinance is yet another burdensome, regulatory process inhibiting development and adding costs. The PLUM Committee referred it to the Public Works Committee, where we will continue to advocate for solutions to the challenges presented in the ordinance.
