Portland homeowners win reprieve from maintaining city’s trees | Portland’s Deep State Tree Rule

Portland homeowners win reprieve from maintaining city’s trees | OregonLive.com

“Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler plans to quash an effort by city bureaucrats to quietly expand homeowners’ responsibilities to care for trees on city-owned land.

The proposed new rule would have required Portland property owners to cut down dangerous trees on city property adjacent to their land, even if the trees were located far from the private property.

A spokesman for Wheeler says he plans to pull the proposed rule and have city employees rewrite it before bringing it back to the City Council for a vote.”

Portland is a city in crisis. There isn’t enough money to take care of parks, trees, roads or bridges. There is money for showcase projects like light rail, bike paths and tax credits for hipster development. Working families get screwed.
