Tree cutting subject of April 3 hearing

The Everett City Council has scheduled an April 3 hearing about allowing people to cut down trees in protected areas when they pose no immediate hazard, but may obstruct views, block out the sun or might create problems in the future.

The hearing to amend city code is set for 6:30 p.m. at City Council Chambers, 3002 Wetmore Ave. The city Planning Commission on Feb. 5 recommended approving the change. The commission has hosted meetings about the issue since October 2010.

The new rule would lift some restrictions in critical areas, which include erosion, flood, landslide and seismic-hazard areas, streams, wetlands, protective buffers and wildlife-habitat zones. Existing code only allows the removal of hazardous trees in these areas.
