The City of Gainesville requires the design process for buildings within its public services and operations (PS) district to take into consideration current and future solar access. In addition, trees that are required by landscaping ordinances may be relocated if they conflict with planned solar energy generation. Other regulated trees may be removed if they prevent reasonable development of the site, including the installation of solar energy equipment.
