COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

OVERGROWN WEEDS AND VEGETATION

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 inspectors would like to remind Temple Citians to keep their lawns trimmed. They will be canvassing the City over the next few months and focusing on this issue. To report problem cases, please call our inspectors at (626) 285-5240.

CDD MONTHLY UPDATE

2019 is off to a faster start than 2018. The number of building permits issued in February 2019 is more than February 2018, and the value of the work done under those permits has increased by more than $1 million. Building staff issued permits for seven accessory dwelling units and four new, single-family houses. The number people coming into City Hall last month increased by 400 people in comparison to the previous February. Planners took in applications for two new, single-family houses, six new, accessory dwelling units, and a conditional use permit for a dance studio at 9534 Las Tunas Dr. Community Preservation inspectors also opened more cases this February than last February. 2019 is turning out to a be a busy year!
