Sec. 35.1-25.1. Landscaping.
It is the intent of the landscaping ordinance to promote the public necessity, convenience, general welfare and good zoning practice by incorporating landscaping, screening and tree preservation requirements into the development review process. The goals are to provide landscaping requirements that will: ensure development consistent with the goals of the comprehensive plan; reduce soil erosion; increase infiltration in permeable land areas to improve stormwater management, mitigate air, dust, noise, and chemical pollution; reduce heat island effect; protect property values, provide buffers between incompatible uses; preserve existing natural vegetation as an integral part of the city and ensure that the city remains an attractive place to live, visit and work. (Ord. of 6-13-06, #O-06-070)
