What Are Brixmor’s Plans for New Trees Along Durham Road?

What Are Brixmor’s Plans for New Trees Along Durham Road? | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

Although the Village at Newtown shopping center is private property and the owners have the freedom to landscape as they see fit, Newtown does have a Subdivision Land Development code that, among other requirements, specifies the quantity and maximum height of trees along Township streets such as Durham Road.

 

Section 22-530 of that code specifies that "Street trees generally shall be at intervals not to exceed 25 feet along the street right-of-way as part of a residential or non-residential subdivision or land development, with trees alternating from side to side fifty-foot maximum spacing on any one side), or as otherwise specified by the Planning Commission.” It also says “Trees shall not at maturity obstruct overhead utilities.”

 

Thus, on Durham Road alongside the shopping center, the code calls for 25 trees. Does the Brixmor landscape plan comply with the code’s requirements?
