The site is located between NW Bella Vista Drive and Luma Vista Drive, on a City owned 76.61 acre parcel of land.

Verbal and written testimony will be taken in regards to the Public Lands Tree Removal Permit (Quasi-Judicial Hearing). The Planning Commission’s decision on the above public hearing items must be based on findings that a specific set of criteria have been or have not been met.
