New Tree Ordinance Put on Hold

The Atlanta City Council called a special meeting on December 20, 2021 in which they decided to file Ordinance 21-0-0063 to amend the tree ordinance, which means the tree ordinance rewrite has been put on hold.  We never did get to see the revised tree ordinance that Councilmember Matt Westmoreland was working on with former Councilmembers Jennifer Ide and J.P. Matsigkeit. Ide and Matsigkeit did not run for reelection in 2021.

It had been Westmoreland's hope to release a modified version of the City's Planning Department's latest ordinance last August (2021) and to vote on it before the November elections. The City's proposed ordinance that has been put on hold is 67 pages, more than double the pages of our current ordinance, and even more complicated and hard for the average resident to understand.

There is a possibility that the new Mayor and City Council may take up the tree rewrite again, but for now, the City's proposed ordinance is on permanent hold. The Tree Next Door's list of recommendations on how to fix the City's proposed Tree Ordinance is linked to our logo on the right-hand side of this page followed by the recommendations of other tree advocacy groups.  Simply click on each logo to see what each particular group had to say about the City's proposed ordinance.  

The Tree Next Door has also put together a list of the "Top Ten Things That Must Be Fixed" in the City's proposed ordinance for those who want just the highlights.
