Tree Removal and Demolition of Accessory Structures Scheduled for 71 Palomar Avenue

Post Date:11/13/2017 9:00 AM

Tree removals and demolition of the accessory structures at 71 Palomar are scheduled to begin Friday, November 10, 2017. Removal of 52 trees is part of a larger plan for the project site which includes the construction of 33 residential units and the rehabilitation of the Historic Sandford House. A Blue Gum Eucalyptus tree, a Canary Island Palm tree, a Norfolk Island Pine tree and a Mexican Fan Palm tree located onsite will remain and be protected. The landscape plan calls for the replanting of 34 trees onsite and supports the planting of an additional 76 trees throughout the City; that is a total of 110 trees to be replanted. The landscape plan also includes planting a variety of shrubs and ground-cover throughout the site.

Demolition of the accessory structures will entail the removal of only non-historic, detached structures on the site. Any demolition or  rehabilitation associated with the Historic Sandford is not set to start at this time. The 71 Palomar project was approved by the City Council on April 4, 2017, and the approval included removal of 55 trees from the site with a 2:1 tree replacement program.

If you have any questions regarding the tree removals, or regarding the project in general, please contact Rachel Cohen, Associate Planner at (805) 781-7574.
