Neighborhood advocates say the trees are healthy and would be removed to make room to build a larger house that could fetch a higher value. City officials agree that most of the trees should be preserved.
The developer, Sage Capital Management, was admonished by city officials to downsize its house design so that the trees can remain in place. The developer then proposed plans that would preserve four of the trees, but this was denied by city officials.
On Wednesday night, the Parks and Recreation Commission will review an appeal filed by the developer of the revised plan's denial. The parks commission has authority to overturn the decision, according to city staff.
This decision was expected to come after the Voice's Wednesday afternoon deadline. Check mv-voice.com for updates.
