A Well-Maintained Neighborhood Starts With You

Lawn Maintenance and Grass Clippings
Thank you to everyone that does a wonderful job maintaining their yard. We realize this takes time but the impact it has on your neighborhood is big. An overgrown yard filled with weeds is an eyesore. According to Section 905.01 of the Obetz Codified Ordinances (OCO), your lawn needs to be free of weeds and grass should not be over six inches in height.

When mowing your lawn, do not leave your grass clippings on the sidewalk or let them blow into the street. If it happens by accident or seems to be unavoidable, just be sure to clean it up. Grass clippings in the street will be washed into the storm drains and eventually into our local waterways.  Grass clippings contribute nitrogen and phosphorus to the waterways which cause unwanted and uncontrolled growth of algae and aquatic weeds. 

Trash Cans
Trash cans sitting along the front of your property all week is not only unsightly but also a violation of OCO Section 557.05(c). Trash cans should not be placed in front of your property until the night before pick-up. They must also be removed and stored behind the front building line of your house within 24 hours of pick-up.

Junked Vehicles
Junked or wrecked vehicles cannot be stored outside. They must be stored in an enclosed garage. Any vehicle that is dismantled or not operational shall be considered a junked vehicle. Vehicles without current license plates must also be stored in an enclosed garage. Refer to OCO Section 1165.11.
