On October 10, 2023, the Ashland Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing at 7:00 p.m. at the Ashland Civic Center, 1175 East Main Street for the following item:
PLANNING ACTION: PA-APPEAL-2023-00018
SUBJECT PROPERTY: 321 Clay Street
OWNER / APPLICANT: Table Rock Tree for Jenny Osborne
APPELLANT: Albert Pepe
DESCRIPTION: This is an appeal for the removal of the weeping willow tree located at space #19. The original request, PA-TREE-2023-00210, was for approval to remove four (4) trees near residences at the Wingspread Mobile Home Park; located near spaces 19, F, 92, and 94. The trees are as follows: weeping willow, 47 inch diameter at breast height (DBH) at space 19; cottonwood, 12 inch DBH at space F; two silver maples 11 inch DBH and 9 inch DBH located between spaces 92 and 94. The application has been prepared by a certified arborist and states that trees are in a state of decline; causing damage to property; severely leaning, and have evidence of decay, respectively. As the trees continue to decline, they present a hazard to nearby properties. In summary, PA-APPEAL-2023-00018 is an appeal of PA-TREE-2023-00210 which was approved for removal of all four trees. The Notice of Land Use Appeal was submitted for only the removal of the weeping willow tree at space #19. COMPREHENSIVE PLAN DESIGNATION: Multi Family Residential; ZONING: R-2; MAP: 39 1E 11C; TAX LOT: 3000
