Slow down - do not fast track

Please take this significant change off the fast track.  The proposed amendment doesn't include public cost of pruning & tree removal.  A true cost-benefit analysis takes into account not just the benefit to the private business, but also the cost to the public (loss of tree shade, greenspace, water runoff capture, air filtration, & having a nice place to live/work).   This proposal needs further review to ensure ALL costs are included in the cost-benefit analysis.

Thank you.
