    Agenda: Presentation on the Tree Protection and Regulation Bylaw by Erica Mashig, Parks and Open Space Planner. The bylaw was adopted on January 13, 2016, to preserve trees on both private and public property and to assist in growing the City’s urban forest. If you wish to cut or remove a tree in your back, side, or front yard, you may require a permit under provision of this Bylaw. The Bylaw regulates which, when, and how trees can be removed or altered through such acts as pruning, root cutting or topping. There will be a question and answer session after the presentation. 

    Reports from Traffic Advisory Committee, Community Policing Committee, Social & Community Issues Committee, Parks & Recreation Committee, and Treasurers Report. 

    From the www.newwestcity.ca website: New Westminster's urban forest is declining at a rate of 1.5% per year and the majority of this loss is occurring on private land. The Tree Protection and Regulation Bylaw No. 7799, 2016 was adopted to preserve trees on both private and public property and to assist in growing the City's urban forest. If you wish to cut or remove a tree in your back, side, or front yard, you may require a permit under provision of this Bylaw. New Westminster preserves trees through the Tree Protection and RegulationBylaw No. 7799, 2016, which prevents unnecessary harm or removal of trees on public and private lands. The Bylaw regulates which, when, and how trees can be removed or altered through such acts as pruning, root cutting or topping.  The Bylaw also establishes the City's authority to issue tree removal permits and set related fees, as well as the requirement for replacement trees and security for their provision and maintenance. This Bylaw came into effect on January 13th, 2016.
