Boulevard landscaping encroachments
When trees and bushes are overgrown, they can impede streets, curbs, and boulevards. Similarly, fences and gates can improperly impede the street.
This is called a boulevard landscaping encroachment.
"Encroachment" is defined as any type of vegetation, man-made object, or personal property that exists on, or extends from a person's premises, on to public lands.
Unsafe boulevard landscaping encroachments
If boulevard landscaping encroachments cause safety hazards, call 3-1-1.
Unsafe landscaping encroachments may include:
- Unsafe fences, gates, hedges, rockeries, and bollards installed or constructed
- Vegetation (trees, hedges, bushes, and so on) that are impeding traffic or pedestrians
- Trees on City boulevards that need maintenance (unstable trees, hanging or fallen branches, and so on)
NOTE: Planting on City boulevards is permitted if it follows City guidelines and does not impede traffic or pedestrians.
