Landscaping & Approved Plant List

Chapter 10-18 of the Town Code contains landscape requirements for all new development. In summary, all new construction must retain a minimum amount (expressed as a percentage of property size) of the developed property in either natural open space or maintained landscape. The percentage of natural open space / landscape varies by zone.

The landscape ordinance also requires the landscape design of new development to screen the view of parking areas and break up the mass of large buildings. Plant selection for landscaped areas must conform to the Town's approved plant list.
