Information
Purpose/Summary
Heritage Tree Ordinance

In 2012, the Planning Commission considered draft "Urban Forestry" policies as part of the Comprehensive Plan update.  Those Urban Forestry policies were not eventually adopted by City Council, but Council did express support for one element of those policies: the establishment of a "Heritage Tree" ordinance to address trees in the community of particular significance, due either to historical context, unusual species or extreme size.   As noted in the attached staff memo, an informal Puyallup Heritage Tree list has existed for several years; however, no formal code has been adopted dealing with these trees.    This Heritage Tree ordinance was subsequently included in the Council-approved 2013 Planning Commission work program. 

This session is intended to be an introductory preview/discussion on this topic.
