View Ordinance

Definition - What does View Ordinance mean?

A view ordinance is a local law that regulates the maintenance of valuable or desirable views for certain property owners. These laws require that certain actions are taken to protect desirable views, such as the periodic trimming of trees that can otherwise block the view. Views can also significantly affect property value.

Justipedia explains View Ordinance

View ordinances are common in areas where there is a desirable natural feature for people to have in the views from their property. For example, lakes, oceans and mountains can all be desirable for people to be able to see in their views.

A view ordinance may require something such as that all the people living in a certain proximity to the natural feature must keep trees on their property below a certain height. This prevents the view from being blocked.
