I -9 <br />RETENTION OR REMOVAL OF PARK AND PARKWAY TREES -- Page 2 • <br />Application of the criteria on parkway trees will be conducted by <br />the Parks, Beaches and Recreation Department in coordination with <br />the Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission. In applying the <br />criteria, other departments of the City will be consulted as <br />necessary. If there is any conflict between the application of <br />the criteria and established standards of the City which cannot <br />be resolved at staff and Commission level, final resolution will <br />be determined by the City Council. <br />The Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission is required to <br />establish a standing Street Tree Committee to assist the <br />Commission in developing a community awareness program and <br />provide input to the total street tree program. Objectives of <br />this Street Tree Committee will be: <br />1. To obtain representation for each situation as it <br />arises in a community and /or neighborhood. <br />2. To develop innovative techniques that will enable trees <br />to be saved when concrete is removed and replaced. <br />3. To provide recommendations to the Parks, Beaches and <br />Recreation Commission when tree removal requests are <br />received. <br />4. To inform the public and further the philosophy of the <br />value of trees in a community. <br />5. To pursue procedures whereby larger replacement trees <br />can be used when trees are removed. <br />6. To assure that no community has a mass removal effect <br />as projects occur. <br />7. Annually review landmark tree locations for inclusion <br />in Council Policy I -9. <br />When a tree is removed from the parkway for the sole benefit of <br />the adjacent property owner, the property owner will be <br />responsible for the cost of removal. Removal must still be done • <br />in accordance with City approvals. <br />Adopted - May 9, 1966 Reaffirmed - December 13, <br />Reaffirmed - August 30, 1966 Reaffirmed - November 11, 1574 <br />Amended - August 14, 1967 Amended - November 12, 1985 <br />Reaffirmed - November 12, 1968 <br />Reaffirmed - March 9, 1970
