A. Existing trees and other natural and unique features shall be subject to the significant tree preservation requirements of SMC 14.240.030 Existing Vegetation. The location of these features must be considered when planning the open space, location of buildings, underground services, walks, paved areas, playgrounds, parking areas, and finished grade levels.
B. The City shall inquire into the means whereby trees and other natural features will be protected during construction. Excessive site clearing of topsoil, trees and natural or unique features before commencement of building operations may disqualify the project as a PRD.
