|Action||Amend Vegetation Control Regulations on State Rights of Way|
|Comment Period||Ends 2/2/2022|
The proposed amended regulation does not take into consideration the public cost versus the private benefit of this type of pruning and tree removal. The amendment only benefits private businesses and does not take into consideration the public impact (loss of amenity, stormwater capture, air purification, shade which will lower temperatures in the immediate area). There is not a complete cost-benefit analysis presented in the proposal and this regulation should not be fast tracked.
