Will the PR District result in fewer trees and greenspace?

No, the proposed Zoning Code specifically targets street tree planting in 150.77, which requires that every new development and every new building expansion include the planting of one street tree per 40 feet of lot frontage or fraction thereof.  The current Zoning Code does not have a tree planting requirement for residential.  

For the first time, the City's Zoning Code will recognize passive greenspace as a permitted use, in nearly every part of town, including the PR District. See the Comprehensive Use Table at 150.41 and the definition of “Passive Greenspace” in the Glossary, Article VII.
