Planning Board Reviews Tree Canopy Conservation Bill

The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing on the bill Jan. 17.

The Montgomery County Planning Board today will review a tree canopy conservation bill proposed by the Montgomery County Council in November.

Bill 35-12 would protect existing tree canopy, create a fund to plant new trees, and "establish procedures, standards, and requirements to minimize the loss and disturbance of tree canopy as a result of development," according to the language proposed.

Planning staff has recommended that the Planning Board support the bill with amendments.

The county council will hold a public hearing on Bill 35-12 on Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Avenue, in Rockville.
