Canopy Roads Citizens Committee
The Tallahassee-Leon County Canopy Roads Citizens Committee (CRCC) is an eight-member public advisory group charged with providing recommendations to the City and County Commissions and local regulatory bodies about protecting and enhancing our designated canopy roads.
Review by the CRCC is required for all projects that propose impacts in the 100-foot canopy road protection zone. Review is required prior to applying for an environmental permit. However, applicants are encouraged to present information to the CRCC early in the development process to help avoid major design modifications. No application is necessary to informally present early design options to the CRCC and receive feedback. If you are seeking a formal recommendation from the CRCC, please complete the request for review provided below.
The CRCC is also engaged in a variety of proactive activities to help protect and enhance the canopy roads system. For more information please see the Annual Report provided below.
If you have questions about the CRCC, please contact Brian Wiebler at the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department, 891-6400.
