June 5, 2018 @ Phinney Neighborhood Center

June 5th, Phinney Ridge Community Council is hosting a discussion about our urban forest and a City Council proposal to further protect our vegetative canopy. The Council and others believe Seattle is losing trees and other plants, along with the critical functions they provide. We will hear a presentation by Friends of Urban Forests,  a coalition reviewing the proposed changes. Discussion will focus on if the PRCC should endorse this effort.   

Among the issues that will be discussed:

Recommended revisions from tree, plant & environmental advocates

Increased protection for exceptional trees, heritage trees, groves, etc. 

Rules regarding trees when building and remodeling

Should tree protections be exempt for developers and apply only to property owners?    


Other items on the agenda are briefings on:

Green Lake road resurfacing

How new City rules affect Phinney Flats parking requirements

Shared Roof rezone request for increased height

HALA policy status

Northern Urban Village boundary 


Please join me and the other PRCC volunteer board members to learn about changes that will affect our neighborhood. Our meetings are open to all. This is also a chance to meet PRCC's newly elected board members.
