View Equity Ordinance

The View Equity (“Trees and Views”) ordinance was established in 2017 as a means to preserve views through collaboration and communication with neighbors whose vegetation has impacted significant views.  While our trees and other foliage are precious and essential, views are important to many homeowners and provide significant equity value.  The RHA has always believed that good neighbors can strike a balance to satisfy competing needs, and the ordinance provides one avenue to do so.

The ordinance and related information is available from the city of Torrance Community Development Department website here.

The RHA, having spent much effort to help get this ordinance enacted, is interested in your experience with pursuing the remedies available through the new process.  Kindly send an email with your thoughts to
