Tree Removal Hearing

A public hearing will be held by the Town’s Tree Ordinance Board in the Town Hall on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the tree removal request of Emily Yoffe, 7414 Oak Lane. 

On September 24, 2010, the applicant filed a permit application with the Town to remove a tulip poplar tree greater than 24” in circumference from the front yard of the property, as shown on the attached sketch.  The Town Manager did not find that the tree is dead, dying, or in danger of falling; a hazard to the safety of persons or property; or an undesirable tree species; therefore, the tree removal permit application was denied. 

The applicant has filed an appeal of the Town Manager’s decision with the Town Tree Ordinance Board.  At the public hearing, the Tree Ordinance Board may affirm the denial of a permit, may direct the Town Manager to issue a permit, or may direct the manager to issue a permit upon such conditions, terms or restrictions as the board may deem necessary to accomplish the intent and purposes of Chapter 29 of the Town Code. 

At this hearing, Town residents will have an opportunity to express their views regarding this request. If you are unable to attend the October 26, 2010 hearing, but would like additional information or would like to voice an objection to or support of the application, please contact Dave Walton at 301-654-7144 prior to the hearing.
