Upon a road being designated as a scenic road as previously provided, any repair, maintenance, reconstruction or paving work done with respect thereto shall not involve or include the cutting or removal of trees or the tearing down or destruction of stone walls or portions thereof, except with the prior written consent of the City Council, after a public hearing duly advertised as to time, date, place and purpose, two times in a newspaper of general circulation in the area, the last publication to occur at least seven days prior to such hearing as provided and set forth in RSA 231:158.
