Tuesday, January 2, 2018 - 11:20pm


The Cottage Grove City Council passed Ordinance 988, which amends City Code Title 7, Chapter 4 relating to plantings and landscaping on boulevards. The title of the chapter changed from Street Trees to Plantings and Landscaping on Boulevards. The City also added language to protect boulevard trees. It is unlawful for any person to cut down or damage a boulevard tree without a written permit from the Public Works Director and a civil penalty is now in place for such violations. The required size and location of a boulevard tree is described throughout the ordinance. The full text of Ordinance 988 is available at Cottage Grove City Hall during regular business hours and is available on the City’s website at under City Ordinances.
