What if landscaping or irrigation in the right-of-way is damaged?
Please do not landscape with rocks, bricks, timbers, shrubs or other items in the right-of-way. Snow plows and sidewalk plows could cause damage and DPW does not repair or replace landscape materials. Some residents have irrigation in the right of way. This is done at the owner’s risk and responsibility. Keep any irrigation heads away from the edges of the sidewalk. Sidewalk snow plow blades are a little wider than the sidewalk in some areas.
