PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO ADMINSTRATIVE RULES: URBAN FORESTRY MANUAL

PUBLIC NOTICE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO ADMINSTRATIVE RULES: URBAN FORESTRY MANUAL The City of Tigard Urban Forestry Manual (UFM) consists of administrative rules that implement the details of the urban forestry related code provisions in Title 8, Title 18, and other applicable titles in the Tigard Municipal Code. The proposed amendments are based on feedback from Tigard residents, developers, and city staff, and aim to clarify the policies and procedures in the UFM. Examples of proposed amendments include: –Updating the wording and numerical Code references in the UFM to be consistent with the newly-updated Community Development Code of the City of Tigard. –Reformatting the section on minimum canopy requirements for new development, so requirements are no longer outlined by zone, but will instead be outlined by development type. This is to be consistent with the newly-updated Community Development Code of the City of Tigard. –Adding a canopy credit bonus for developers who preserve existing, young native trees (native trees that are less than 6 inches diameter at breast height). –Clarifying bonding requirements for trees in new developments. The full text of proposed amendments is available at the City of Tigard Permit Center, 13125 SW Hall Blvd., Tigard, OR 97223, or by contacting Lina Smith, Assistant Planner at (503) 718-2438 or LinaCS@tigard-or.gov.
