Tree View Ordinance

Approved in 1984, the ordinance includes a process to resolve the loss of a tree view
that existed at the time of purchase. The process to make a tree view claim includes
the steps from initial conversation through arbitration.If the process is not
successful, civil litigation is required.
A group of neighbors are interested in adding “teeth” to the ordinance and a future
discussion with the County of Contra Costa will be scheduled by Kate Rauch, District
Coordinator. To participate email kate.rauch@bos.cccounty.us. Concerns about the
cost of civil litigation in addition to blockage of solar panels are spurring on the need
to share ideas.
