The applicant requests Tree Removal Permit approval to authorize the removal five protected Coast live oak trees and one protected Bay tree, and one heritage Bay tree from a vacant property in Mill Valley.
A Building Permit has been submitted for development of a residence on the lot, but the residence does not require prior Planning approval.
A Tree Removal Permit is required for any removal of “protected” trees on a vacant site.
Tree Removal Permit approval is required because the removal of more than two Protected Trees within one year requires review and approval per Chapter 22.62 of the Marin County Code.
