San Mateo County Planning Commission will hold a public workshop to consider a new Protected Tree Ordinance that would replace the Significant and Heritage Tree Ordinances.

Nov 28, 2018, 9:00 – 11:30 AM
400 County Center, Board of Supervisors Chambers

Meeting objectives are to provide the Planning Commission and members of the general public opportunity to review the proposed Protected Tree Ordinance, ask questions and provide comments.

The proposed ordinance retains the protection thresholds of both current ordinances, increases protection of indigenous species, and streamlines permitting for a small class of trees considered nuisance or invasive species (including blue gum eucalyptus and also Monterey pine in designated high fire hazard areas).

Early next year there will be a presentation at MCC, and circulation of an environmental review document before formal consideration of the final document by the Planning Commission.
