City Council Update - October 15, 2018

Public comments were made by five guests.

John Kaloustian, who lives on West Main Street and owns a home on 1st Street, says an oak tree on his 1st Street property is creating mold on the roof and has cracked his driveway and sidewalk, and he wants to cut it down. The Council advised him of the tree ordinance, which states that you can’t cut down a healthy, landmark tree except in certain instances. In those cases, there’s remediation: pay into the city tree fund or replace the tree with a tree of a specified type and size.

Nancy Chiri, of 661 W. Main, commented about plans to redevelop the Northville Downs property.
