G-6 <br />MAINTENANCE AND PLANTING OF PARKWAY TREES <br />The City Council is vitally interested in beautification of City parkways. Public <br />cooperation in helping to develop and maintain healthy and attractive parkway trees is <br />encouraged. <br />I. MAINTENANCE OF PARKWAY TREES <br />The Municipal Operations Department will trim the parkway trees on a rotation <br />schedule. An effort will be made to trim the parkway trees on less than a three- <br />year cycle. If the rotation trimming is completed in less than three years, more <br />frequent trimming will be performed on certain trees and in view areas. Public <br />safety issues such as low branches and heavy foliage will be given priority over <br />view trimming. An effort will be made to trim parkway trees located in heavy <br />summer traffic areas during the fall and winter months. Annual trimming of <br />certain species of trees prone to wind damage will be done prior to the winter <br />season. <br />II�1IR"a j161C010 IT4aCO N16011641 <br />The City Council has adopted an official street tree list, the Street Tree Designation <br />List, which will be used by the Municipal Operations Department to determine <br />species for replacement of trees removed from established parkways and for <br />planning purposes in all new subdivisions and commercial developments. A <br />second list, the Parkway Tree Designation List, has been added as a species palette <br />for residents to choose approved, new and replacement, trees based on the size of <br />parkway available for planting. <br />The Municipal Operations Director will have the authority to add species to the <br />Street and Parkway Tree Designation Lists, which will be updated on an annual <br />basis by the Municipal Operations Department staff and reviewed by the Parks, <br />Beaches and Recreation Commission ("Commission') for approval before <br />adoption by the City Council. <br />III. STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR PLANTING PARKWAY TREES <br />General Requirements <br />1. 72 -hour notification shall be given to the Municipal Operations Department <br />staff prior to the initial installation of parkway trees for approval of species, <br />material quality, and planting supervision. 24-hour notice shall be given <br />prior to all subsequent inspections as required. <br />1 <br />
