After hours of public comment and discussion by the commission, the Decatur City Commission voted 4-1 (with Mayor Baskett casting the only “nay” vote) this evening to table the tree ordinance until early March.
The vote included noting that they planned to accept revisions to some of the numbers that have been much discussed here over the past few days – the 55% coverage, the 10% lot coverage, the $1.50 a square foot cost. The Commission stated that they had asked staff lower all of these figures prior to the meeting.
We can go into further detail on these tomorrow. Or if anyone wants to report out more details in the comments, go for it.
