November 2019 Update!


     At the May 7, 2019 County Commissioners Meeting

  • Commissioners unanamously agreed the clear cutting of our county had to stop.
  • Commissioners felt there "had to be a better way"
  • They advised staff to come back with a proposal that stopped the clear cutting .

                           What Happened?

     1.   In August a new draft proposal was shared with    

         Citz4Trees and the Developers who attended

​         stakeholder meetings at the County.  A meeting

         with the Commissioners was scheduled for  

         September 3, 2019.

     2.  Citz4Trees reviewed the draft and assessed the

           changes were an overall positive for tree

         protection.

      3.  Subsequently, the link to the draft was 

         inactivated and the meeting was cancelled.

     4.  Citz4Trees has not received an explanation why!
