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 Concerns about the
cost of civil litigation in addition to blockage of solar panels are spurring on the need
to share ideas.
