AMD2020-0002 Notice of Public Hearing: Draft Tree Regulations Update

From November 25, 2020 8:00 am until December 09, 2020 7:00 pm
Categories: Public Hearing

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The Planning Board will hold a public hearing on draft tree regulations being considered by the City of Edmonds. The intent of the tree regulations update is to implement the Urban Forest Management Plan (UFMP) that was adopted in 2019. A goal of the UFMP is to “Update tree regulations to reduce clearcutting or other development impacts on the urban forest and to consider tree replacement requirements and penalties for code violations.” The draft tree regulations address this goal as wells as another UFMP goal of establishing a City Tree Fund. The draft regulations are primarily provided in a new Chapter 23.10 ECDC, a new Chapter 3.95 in City Code for the Tree Fund establishment, and a new section in the subdivision Chapter 20.75 ECDC for design flexibility to retain more trees with development. More information on the tree code may be found at the website treecode.edmondswa.gov.
