Atlanta Officials Give REALTORS® Tree Ordinance Update

June 13, 2019

At a joint meeting of both the residential and commercial REALTORS'® Governmental Affairs Committees, members were able to learn more and discuss their views regarding the upcoming tree ordinance update directly with staff from the City of Atlanta.

The City of Atlanta's project manager for this ordinance update gave an in depth presentation to our members. After being presented with information about the details of the project, REALTORS® were able to express their concerns and offer ideas on how to make the plan work for both residents of the city and still be conducive to continued growth and development.

Planning department staff assured our members they will continue to keep us engaged in the process and apprised of developments as they occur. 

If you have insight on any updates that you feel would better serve our members, please contact Governmental Affairs Director Aaron Johnson at 404-732-0631.
