The city of North Bend is proposing amendments to its tree regulations, specifically Chapter 19.10 of the North Bend Municipal Code. The amendments are intended to clarify tree protection guidelines for new development and offer credit for retaining smaller trees to increase tree canopy throughout the city. The draft regulations and introductory memo to the Planning Commission are available on the City’s website under public notices.

The North Bend Planning Commission will begin reviewing the draft code and concepts with the city’s consulting arborist at the commission’s regularly scheduled meeting, starting at 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 22, at the North Bend City Hall Conference Room (211 Main Avenue N.).

The Planning Commission will also hold a public hearing on the issue in the near future.

For more information contact Jamie Burrell, Senior Planner at (425) 888-7642 or send email to jburrell@northbendwa.gov.
