Often in construction projects, it is discovered that one of our city's four protected trees might be at risk during the process. Such construction projects are referred to the Tree Advisory Commission before a building permit is issued.
The Tree Advisory Commission Construction Application Packet documents and forms are linked below.
Municpal Code, Chapter 12.20 Tree Preservation and Protection, to view the Tree Preservation Ordinance.
The Tree Advisory Commission reviews the project, discusses the measures taken to protect the trees, and decides on mitigation if anything should happen to the trees. Please contact Public Works for further information on the process and necessary forms.
