Sarasota, FL: To encourage public input and accommodate residents’ workday schedules, the Tree Advisory Committee will hold a special evening session to gather input on the City of Sarasota’s tree protection ordinance on Wednesday, May 23 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 1565 First Street.
“Anyone who has an interest in the City’s tree protection ordinance and what should remain or be changed should attend this meeting,” said Tim Litchet, Development Services Director and staff liaison to the Tree Advisory Committee. “The Committee truly wants public input and is making a good faith effort by adjusting its regular afternoon meeting schedule so more people can attend and participate.”

The 7-member ad hoc committee was appointed by the City Commission in 2017 to review the current tree ordinance and make recommendations within 12 months on possible modifications.
Since December 2017, the Committee has met twice a month during the afternoon. It is on pace to finish its assignment on schedule and provide recommendations to the City Commission as soon as this fall.
