At the 12/8 Board Meeting, the Board adopted the updated Landscape Committee Charter and the Landscape Plan 2020-2022, which will be included in the minutes and also posted here.
Excerpts: Ordinance 2047 governs our development, and we’re getting back into compliance. This year, we built trust at the Town of Los Gatos with the arborist, code compliance and attorney offices, and gained their assistance with permit price reductions and donations of trees. Together, we have been given a unique opportunity to restore what the Town called Los Gatos’ “last remaining heritage orchard:”
1. huge savings with a “per project” permit fee (~cost of “per tree” fee);
2. Eight (8) free trees for the front row this year, allowing us to plant a total of 21 trees in 2020;
3. No penalties for previous cutting down of trees;
4. 15 gal. Merlot, Forest Pansy, Western Redbud suits soil, location, and climate conditions.
The Regent Drive “Linear Park” is designated Oak/Western Chaparral environment and the landscape plan calls for commitment to that.
New natives will take a bit of time to establish, and are dormant in the summer. They add beauty and color to the neighborhood, while following wildlife/fire/landscape guidance from the Town.
RoundUp and other Carcinogens
No carcinogenic chemicals have been applied since February 2020, making for a safer environment for children, adults and pets who come into contact with any common area, especially as now, families are spending all their time in our own neighborhood, walking, and playing close to home.
Excerpts from the Landscape Plan
Trees – all trees 4″ in diameter that were part of the original HG development plan filed with the town in 1999 require a permit to cut down. For trees in your yards, and/or not on the original development plan, the hillside tree permit rules apply.
Free Curb trees: If you are thinking of replacing a curb tree, or planting a new one – perhaps your sycamore or eucalyptus trees are damaging sidewalks (you’re responsible for making sure your sidewalk doesn’t buckle) contact Rob Moulden, at the Town, and arrange your new free curb tree.
Orchard: Old stumps ground. 21 new trees planted in 2020. At least 8 new trees will be planted in 2021.
