New Tree Protection Ordinance Introduced


Yesterday, Atlanta City Council introduced legislation for a new Tree Protection Ordinance. It was referred to the Community Development and Human Services Committee for their next session on January 26, 2021. We have published the legislation, a summary of the revisions, and process diagrams on our Tree Protection Ordinance. In addition, there was accompanying legislation for a Zoning amendment which proposes setback variances for the purposes of tree preservation. We will also be sharing an interactive walk through of the ordinance and its components soon which we will send along when complete. Any feedback or questions you may have can be sent to the project team at [email protected].
