Roadside Vegetation Management

Improperly maintained vegetation including trees and bushes can block sidewalks, signs, street lights, and impair visibility at intersections creating a hazard for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers.

Pavement Management

Through the City’s Pavement Management program the City visually inspects every major roadway annually and local streets once every three years to assess their condition and determine where pavement maintenance is needed.
