COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

FOCUS ON VEGETATION

Our Community Preservation team has been focusing on complaints related to overgrown vegetation. With all the recent rain, comes a lot of overgrown vegetation. Since the start of the year, staff has opened 128 cases. Some have been particularly bad, as shown by the photos below. Staff is grateful, especially in this case, that most residents are complying within the specified timeline.

Overgrown weeds and vegetation not only look unsightly, but they can harbor rats, vermin, and insects. Without watering, in the dry months they can turn into a fire hazard. The Temple City Municipal Code states that lawns with grass more than six inches in height constitutes a public nuisance. With all the rain over the last few months and with the oncoming sun of spring, our Community Preservation team would like to remind residents to keep their lawns trimmed. A canvassing of the city will focus on this issue over the next few months. To report problem cases, please call (626) 285-5240.
