The Independent is reporting that City Council is moving forward with the hedge height
"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.
