The city council passed changes to an older ordinance on Monday night.

They impact people or companies with areas for vehicles.

The ordinance goes into place when someone applies for a building permit.

The council told us the rules require a tree for every four parking spaces.

That's in addition to a shrub for every parking spot and a grass island for every 16 parking spots.

The city's historic district has its own standards.
