Hide details for Executive SummaryExecutive Summary

The Town of Claremont's Tree Preservation Local Law as drafted:
          (1) unduly trespasses on established rights, freedoms or liberties and unduly makes rights dependant upon administrative, and not judicial, decisions;
          (2) fails to allow for any exemptions;
          (3) does not include definitions for things that should be defined and does not adequately define those things that are defined;
          (4) gives no indication as to how the Town would make its decisions on applications to remove trees; and
          (5) contains a deemed refusal clause which is unfair in its operation.
