he Trees, Scenic Views and Sunlight Ordinance (DMMC 23.51) provides a process by which residents may seek to restore scenic views and/or sunlight that they feel have been unreasonably obstructed by the growth and/or installation of trees and vegetation since the time the property owner purchased or occupied the property, or in the last 10 years, whichever is shorter. The Ordinance requires that attempts are first made to work out an amicable solution with the vegetation owner, including formal mediation. If these resolution efforts are not successful, then a resident may apply to have the issue reviewed by the Planning Commission at a public hearing. The Commission would then make a determination if the blockage that has occurred is, pursuant to the Ordinance's standards of review, "unreasonable" and if so, what type of view/sunlight restoration measures are appropriate. To find out more about the process and other application requirements, you may view the Ordinance in its entirety on this website or by calling the Planning Department at (858) 755-9313.
