Weeds and Grass
Weeds and grass on residential lots must not be more than six inches high or hang over the sidewalk or the public right-of-way. Property owners are responsible for any weed growth in the sidewalks and alley ways adjacent to your property.
The City cannot force any person owning, leasing or otherwise having control of the property to landscape their property. The City does not intervene in aesthetics or landscaping appearances. However, properties must be maintained and free of uncontrolled vegetation. Any person owning or occupying any building or property is required to remove all trash, weeds, refuse or accumulation of filth or debris from the property. Landscaping and irrigation systems must also be maintained. Property owners must also keep their landscaping maintained to ensure there is no obstruction of the view of traffic or traffic signs/signals. Trees and hedges should be trimmed back to allow a clear view of oncoming traffic, stop signs and street lighting.
To report a violation, complete a Service Request Form or contact Code Compliance Office at 623-882-7815. Due to difficulty in locating property owners, violations on vacant and foreclosed homes may take months or longer to resolve.
