With winter here, Community Services is reminding property owners to keep the City's right-of-way clear of obstructions.

The City's right-of-way applies to streets, sidewalks, utility poles, trees, signs and water, sewer and drainage lines. Obstructions in the right-of-way, such as lawn markers, pose a safety concern to fire apparatus and maintenance equipment, and can prohibit the City's plow crews from maintaining adequate road width during winter storms.

The City's right-of-way is typically 50 feet, and extends 12 to 14 feet beyond the edge of pavement. This additional space is often necessary for snow removal and storage during the winter months, and allows crews to maintain clear and safe roadways.

In addition, be mindful of other obstructions that may interfere with snow removal during and after winter storms. For example, trash bags and recycling bins on city streets and sidewalks can impede the work of snow plows and sidewalk tractors.
