Maintaining visibility at intersections

As we enter the growing season, it’s important for residents to be aware of their responsibility to maintain vegetation in intersection rights-of-way adjacent to your property. Residents are required to trim or remove:

  • Bushes, grasses, or other plants over 3 feet tall 
  • Tree branches over 7 feet tall

Thank you for keeping Lafayette safe for all!
