In July 2010, DPD proposed a comprehensive revision of Seattle’s tree regulations. Responding to Council Resolution 31138, DPD evaluated the effectiveness of existing regulations and made recommendations on how they could be improved. The proposal is intended to meet the goals of the Urban Forest Management Plan while balancing competing needs. For more information, please visit: www.seattle.gov/dpd/planning/trees.
DPD is accepting public comments through October 31, after which we will begin drafting legislation for Council to consider in 2011.
