Residential Property Maintenance Codes


Homeowners are responsible for understanding the property maintenance rules. The City's minimum property maintenance code is available on-line for viewing and at all City libraries, and hard copies are available for sale at the Development Services Department (One Stop).

Some of the resident responsibilities include:

  • Mowing your lawn and keeping grass and weeds less than 12 inches in height.
  • Keeping your property clean, safe and in sanitary condition at all times.
  • Keeping Rights-of-Way free of obstructions including, overhanging tree limbs and other plants that impede the passage of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
