Resolution establishing and modifying administrative citation fines in the Citywide Fee Schedule for enforcement of the public tree and indigenous tree ordinances

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:
