The Tiburon Parks, Open Space and Trails (POST) Commission will hold a public meeting on Monday, February 12, 2018 to review and provide comment on a Tree Permit application proposing the removal of forty-two (42) trees from South Knoll in the Town's Richardson Bay Lineal Park, a public park.  The project would remove twenty one (21) Blue Gum Eucalyptus trees, fifteen (15) Italian Stone Pine trees, and six (6) Monterey Pine trees from South Knoll and its immediate vicinity.  A request has been made by a group of private property owners to remove these trees to promote growth of native vegetation, reduce potential safety hazards and improve views from residences above the site. 

The POST Commission will also consider an Initial Study (see link below to view the environmental document) and draft Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project.  Based upon the findings of the Initial Study, Town staff is recommending that a Mitigated Negative Declaration be adopted for the project pursuant to Section 21080 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).  Adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration would indicate that the project would not result in any significant adverse effects on the environment once identified mitigation measures are imposed on the project.

The role of the POST Commission at the meeting on February 12, 2018 is to consider making a recommendation to the Town Council regarding the Tree Permit and to consider the Initial Study and draft Mitigated Negative Declaration in making its recommendation.

The Tree Permit application and supporting documents are available for review at the Planning Division, Tiburon Town Hall, 1505 Tiburon Boulevard, Tiburon, CA 94920.  The Initial Study and draft Mitigated Negative Declaration document is available for public review at Town Hall.  

Inquiries regarding this project should be directed to Dan Watrous, Planning Manager at 415-435-7393 or at dwatrous@townoftiburon.org.  

The POST public meeting will be held at the Town Council Chambers in Town Hall, 1505 Tiburon Boulevard, Tiburon, CA 94920, on Monday, February 12, 2018.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM. Public Comment is welcomed.
