View Restoration Committee

Members of the View Restoration Committee adjudicate view claims submitted by property owners to restore pre-existing views that are alleged to be significantly impaired by vegetation. The five member committee of local residents appointed by the City Council conducts public hearings to review claims, hear testimony and determine significant view impairment. The committee may approve a view restoration order and establish a maintenance schedule for the subject vegetation on the property. 

The View Restoration Committee generally meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at 505 Forest Avenue. Meetings are open to the public. See the City Calendar for our next meeting date.
