1147.01 INTENT.
   The City of Lorain determines it is necessary and desirable to enact landscaping and buffering regulations for the protection of the public health, safety and welfare.  The importance of plant material is recognized by the City for its contribution to shade, cooling, noise and wind reduction, soil erosion prevention, oxygen production, dust filtration, carbon dioxide absorption, aesthetic and economic enhancement of all real property, and its contribution to the general well-being and quality of life of the citizens of Lorain. Consistent with the expressed purpose of this chapter, all persons shall make reasonable efforts to preserve and retain certain existing, self-supporting trees as defined in these regulations. In order to achieve these purposes, this chapter calls for the conservation and planting of trees, shrubs and groundcover without denying the reasonable use and enjoyment of real property.
