COMMUNITY PRESERVATION REMINDER
All the spring rain we have received coupled with the coming warm weather means our lawns, trees, and shrubs are primed for growth. Now is the time to trim those lawns, hedges, and trees. Overgrown vegetation does not just look unsightly, but it provides a habitat for rodents and can provide fuel for fires as it dries out. The Municipal Code states that a public nuisance exists when grass is more than six inches high, when trees are within five feet of a roof, and when shrubs are not maintained. If you see a particularly bad case, you can report it to us at RequestTracker or by calling (626) 285-5240.
