Vegetation Along Roadway

Vegetation Along Roadways


Vegetation:
Every year, the Township trims back branches and other vegetation that extend into the travel lanes of Township through streets. This is the roadside mowing and elevated cut that's done several times a year to reduce the height of grass and other plants that are growing in the first several feet of the right-of-way.
The right-of-way on some subdivision streets also becomes obstructed by overhanging branches and other vegetation. We are asking subdivision residents to help keep over-hanging branches and other vegetation from impeding lines-of-site and obstructing travel lanes by trimming back branches and vegetation so that there is at least a 15-foot vertical clearance from the roadway and at least 2 feet of clearance from the edge of the pavement.
When lines of site and travel lanes are impeded, it shall be the responsibility of the homeowner to perform the necessary maintenance. g subdivision residents to please help keep over-hanging branches and other vegetation from impeding lines-of-site and obstructing travel lanes. Branches and vegetation should be trimmed-back (in the manner most acceptable to the resident), so that there is at least a 15-foot vertical clearance from the roadway and at least 2 feet of clearance from the edge of the pavement. If residents do not take care of this maintenance, then the Township will need to take care of it.

Every year, the Township trims back branches and other vegetation that are beginning to extend into the travel lanes of Township through streets. This is in addition to the roadside mowing that's done several times a year, in order to reduce the height of grass and other plants that are growing in the first several feet of the right-of-way. The right-of-way on some subdivision streets is now also becoming obstructed by overhanging branches and other vegetation.
