View Obstruction by Trees and Vegetation In the Hillside Overlay District

The View Equity Ordinance was adopted to provide Hillside Overlay residents a process to restore a view obstructed by neighboring private vegetation.  A view can be restored to that which existed on the date the property was purchased or as far back as 15 years prior to the adoption of the Ordinance (which would be 03/07/02), whichever is most recent.  For detailed information, please refer to the links below.
