Sidewalk obstruction removal program explained

-A A +A

The county would like property owners to voluntarily remove vegetation along sidewalks

By The Staff

In 2002, Los Alamos County instituted a sidewalk obstruction removal program to clear sidewalks adjacent to homes and businesses of overgrown vegetation.

Clearing crews hired by the county removed overgrown vegetation along sidewalks in Los Alamos and White Rock, leaving clear pathways for pedestrian use. The program proved a success because:

•The county sidewalks were reclaimed for their intended use;

•It enhanced the appearance of our community; and

•It was a positive response to a problem brought forth by citizens, groups, and a county board through public information, citizens were made aware of their responsibilities and many took actions to bring their properties into substantial compliance with the guidelines they were given.

With the recent winter snowfall, it’s time once again to address vegetation growth issues. The county would like to solicit the cooperation of property owners to voluntarily remove vegetation along sidewalks. By addressing issues now, you can get a “jump start” on weeds before they become a real problem this summer.  

Invasive weeds will be a problem this spring and summer, so we would ask everyone to pull, spray, or otherwise control weeds and grass on their property and adjacent to our sidewalks.
