Tree & Shrubbery Maintenance

Responsibilities


Trees and Shrubbery maintenance within city right-of-ways are the responsibility of the Public Works Department.  However, the Code Enforcement Division encourages property owners to maintain trees and shrubs in the right-of-way and remove trees, bushes, shrubs or parts that hang over sidewalk or street and block driver's or pedestrian's view.
 

Regulations


In all districts except the Central Business District, no planting or other obstruction (above a height of 3 feet) shall be maintained within 15 feet of the intersection of the right-of-way unless approved by the Public Works Director.
