Community Development staff in partnership with Technical Forestry Consultants and members of the Milton community have concluded their efforts to complete a comprehensive re-write of Milton's tree preservation ordinance. Over the last six months, the workgroup has met and worked through more than four draft documents carefully tweaking the language based on input from Milton citizens, businesses, developers and the city attorney. The final draft was presented to and approved by the Milton City Council during the Feb. 5 meeting.
The approved ordinance can be viewed here. (Note: This is a temporary posting for the approved tree canopy conservation ordinance. All approved ordinances can be found on Municode. There is a slight delay between approval and upload to Municode.)
The approved Tree Conservation Manual can be viewed here.
Additional documents and instructions are coming soon. If you are contemplating tree removal on your property, please contact Community Development prior to removal.
