City Council Postpones Public Hearing for Landmark Tree Ordinance

The City Council postponed setting a public hearing date for the landmark tree ordinance during its business meeting on Tuesday, July 10.

The Council is waiting until it receives further information from the Planning Commission on measures to protect and preserve trees. The Planning Commission has been discussing tree protection and preservation measures and will continue the conversation at its July 26 meeting. It is expected, based on the Planning Commission's estimate, that the Commission will provide a recommendation to Council in the next several weeks. 


The City Council approved the landmark tree ordinance in a 6-1 vote on June 26 as an emergency ordinance after numerous public comments expressing concern about the loss of landmark trees on Bainbridge Island.
