Final Public Meeting Tonight on St. Catharines Tree By-law

May 7, 2019

By: Marie Cassidy

It's your last chance to find out more on the proposed private property tree by-law in St. Catharines.

An open house is running from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. tonight at the Semour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre.

The Garden City is looking at permits to protect the urban canopy.

Resident would need a $100 permit to take down a tree on their land, and additional trees would be $50.

There could also be re-planting conditions if a permit is approved, depending on the size of the tree.

If you can't make the meeting tonight, there is more information and a survey on the city's website.
