Hedge Height Ordinance Moves Forward
updated: Mar 27, 2014, 10:40 AM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

The Independent is reporting that City Council is moving forward with the hedge height ordinance. "The Santa Barbara City Council inched forward with language approving a new hedge height ordinance to allow higher front and side yard hedges and allowing city staff more discretion to approve exceptions based on circumstances specific to the property in question."

"Under the new rules, side yard hedges are legal up to eight feet, but staff has discretion to allow another six feet if the neighbors agree. Front yard hedges will be limited to eight feet as well, but with less discretion for exceptions."

Edhat commenters recently discussed this issue last month when a subscriber asked if people agreed with the ordinance. View the comments here.
