The heritage tree removal application for 39 heritage trees at 350 Sharon Park Drive has been approved.  In August 2016, staff recommended the approval of the application to the Environmental Quality Commission (EQC).  The EQC provided recommendations to the heritage tree removal permit and related development to the Planning Commission. Upon approval by the Planning Commission in September 2016, staff conducted several meetings with the property owner, City attorney, and community members to implement the EQC’s recommendations as conditions of approval for the heritage tree removals. 

Conditions of approval include the following:

·         Two replacement trees planted for each heritage tree removed,

·         A minimum size of 24” box for the majority of replacement trees,

·         Tree planting and irrigation enhancements in the adjacent Sharon Road median island, and

·         A four-year maintenance agreement for non-heritage trees (13”-14” diameter) on the property.
