City Planning Board’s Workshop for the Proposed City of Pensacola Tree & Landscape Ordinance!

City Planning Board’s Workshop for the Proposed City of Pensacola Tree & Landscape Ordinance!

The City of Pensacola’s Planning Board is hosting a public workshop [October 24th from 4-6PM at the Hagler Mason Conference Room, Pensacola City Hall, 222 W Main St. Pensacola, FL] that will include all stakeholder groups in crafting a new Tree & Landscape ordinance to the Pensacola Code of City Ordinances. Technical advisors and materials will be provided to explain the proposed changes so the public can participate in crafting comments to be submitted towards the final product.

Over the years, urban development, tree-cutting practices and House Bill 1159 have generated concerns by residents, developers, municipalities and local arborists. Find out what the current law states, what is being proposed and how you can help the City protect their future tree canopy.

ALL GROUPS! Licensed arborists, developers, scientists, business owners, residents and non-traditional participants are encouraged to participate! The Executive Director of Emerald Coastkeeper, Laurie Murphy will be providing a presentation on the details of the proposed tree ordinance changes.

Attached is the revised Tree and Landscape Ordinance
