The Healthy Forests Project is a County-initiated project that was officially docketed by the Board of County Commissioners in 2020 as A-25, Update Forest Conversion Ordinance and Review Tree Protection Standards. It was later clarified to include a countywide canopy assessment and focus on a review of rural tree protection standards. Tree protection provisions for the North County urban growth areas will be reviewed and updated as part of the upcoming Joint Code Update (expected to begin in late-2022 or 2023 under development code docket items JP-2, JP-3, and JP-4).
