Tree talk in White Rock

Citizens of White Rock will have two opportunities this month to review and comment on proposed changes to the city’s tree management bylaw (Policy 611).

The draft revisions will be available for perusal in council chambers (15322 Buena Vista Ave.) from 4-6 p.m. Sept. 13, and from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 22.

Council gave unanimous support in July to putting the revisions to the public.

The original Policy 611 was approved in June 2010, and was intended to give staff and council guidance in dealing with applications to trim, prune or remove trees on city lands. It became a source of contention earlier this year, after council granted an appeal that resulted in the removal of two trees in the 15100-block of Royal Avenue. The applicant said the trees were blocking views.
