Supes to vote on Newsom’s green landscaping bill 

On Monday, the Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee will hold a hearing on Mayor Gavin Newsom’s proposed Green Landscaping Ordinance. The legislation does a number of things, including increasing the requirements for property owners to take care of street trees.

Under the legislation, the Department of Public Works director could penalize property owners whose trees are not “established” after three years, the period when the tree is determined it can survive living off of the annual rainfall and is no longer in need of watering. The DPW director would also be able to establish rules “for proper care and maintenance during the establishment period.” In addition, dead street trees would have to be replaced within six months.

The committee meets Monday at City Hall in Room 263 at 1 p.m.
