Vegetation Control 

Vegetation Trimming Guidelines are as follows:  

Property owners are responsible for controlling vegetation throughout their property frontage from encroaching into the road right-of-way.  Vegetation shall not impede the accessibility of sidewalks nor walkways, neither obstruct traffic control devices nor diminish sight distances.

As a rule of thumb, if vegetation encroaches into the roadways, it shall be trimmed a minimum of 15’ vertically and 48” horizontally. Sidewalks shall be cleared of vegetation for a minimum of 48” horizontally and 80” vertically to comply with accessibility standards.   

Vegetation shall be immediately trimmed if it covers a traffic control device such as a stop sign, street sign, traffic signal, etc.

Vegetation shall not diminish sight distance from vehicles coming in and out of driveways, at roadway curves nor at roadway intersections.
