Parking lot owners: tree law costly

Planting trees can be costly, especially if you are the owner of a large parking lot. Operators of the Eastgate Shopping Center are requesting city officials to allow them not “comply” with Oxford’s landscape ordinance. To comply with the ordinance some 48 trees would have to be planted which would cost Eastgate owners an additional $190,000. (July 23, 2010, Page 1A)

      I haven’t seen the ordinance, but unless there is some funny business going on, how on Earth can putting in 48 trees cost $190,000??? I would do it MUCH more cheaply. I think I’m in the wrong profession.

      I agree there is no way it would cost them that much to plant a tree or even 50 of them they are just being selfish anyways. im sure the rent alone of just a month from those buisness would cover their cost. i guess when you are rich enough you’ll fight any law that makes you have to spend money to better the community. I love how beautiful oxford looks and if its because there is a law that makes you do this i think its a great idea.
