explanation

STAFF REPORT

 

This ordinance will amend the Land Development Code (LDC) regarding certain tree mitigation regulations. Specifically, this ordinance will provide reduced tree mitigation requirements for the development of affordable housing for low-income households, and will provide design requirements for subdivisions to maximize the preservation of high-quality heritage trees.

 

The City Plan Board held a public hearing on December 10, 2019, where it voted to recommend approval of this amendment to the Land Development Code.  This ordinance requires two hearings and will become effective immediately upon adoption at second reading.
