Tonight: City to introduce revised law requiring water-efficient landscaping methods

 

Menlo Park's City Council will take another crack at an ordinance requiring the use of water-efficient landscaping techniques on residential properties.

The ordinance is a modified version of one designed by the Bay Area Water and Conservation Agency to comply with a state law that went into effect Jan. 1. The ordinance would apply only to new homes, or homes that undergo extensive renovations or landscaping overhauls.

The city will introduce the ordinance at the council meeting Tuesday, April 27. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the City Council chambers, located in the Civic Center complex between Laurel and Alma streets.

This is the third time the ordinance has appeared on the council agenda since December, as council members have grappled with the details and implications of the new law.
