Condensed council discussion on street trees

This is still 20 minutes, but I cut 75% of the hearing out.

In short, myself and Randy Staver didn’t feel the variance met the legal standard.  Ed Hruska, Bruce Snyder, and Dennis Hanson, have never supported this.  Mark Bilderback and Sandra Means were willing to go along with the variance. Compromise passed 7-0 so we all suck equally.

Northwest Investments (Kwik Trip) will plant fewer trees, leave West Circle Drive treeless, donate trees to RNeighborwoods.  The variance request also removed power from the city forester, but we were able to restore that.

Edit, I see some video is missing so I will try to fix that.

Edit 2, Should be fixed.
