Eco Items on the Agenda
6 pm Regular City Council Meeting
GEC POSITION on Item 8b:
GEC urges City Council to adopt the changes to the ordinance but to continue striving to:
- Implement the Sustainability Commission’s recommended changes to the ordinance to better protect mature trees.
- Include education of Glendale residents about the value of trees as capital assets for their properties and neighborhoods.
- Look more closely at our neighbors, La Cañada, Pasadena, San Marino, even L.A. These cities all protect more species and have stronger regulations.
- Empower other Public Works staff to do more tree protection during permitting and inspections to reduce the load on the Urban Forest Department.Read our full letter here: https://gec.eco/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/GEC-Letter-re-Tree-Ordinance.pdf
