Yes. Absolutely. In addition to a 40% city-wide target, there needs to be increased protections of trees and reserved landscaped open space as we intensify our city. I am encouraged by the recent addition of active input from the City forester in Committee of Adjustment applications, which should help protect mature trees. The target may be difficult to achieve in very dense downtown neighbourhoods, but that aspiration should guide our zoning and other Council decisions.
