Tree and Shrub Trimming/Removal in Public Right-of-Way and Alleyways in Parkside Area:
Hollywood Boulevard to Pembroke Road from US1 to N. 21st Avenue
Start Date: February 2021
Final Completion: March 2023
As part of the City's water main replacement project in the Parkside Neighborhood, work is taking place in alley public right-of-way from Hollywood Boulevard to Pembroke Road and US1 to N. 21st Avenue. Property owners in this neighborhood are asked to trim or remove trees and shrubs in the alley public right-of-way to their property line to allow crews safe access to work.
Per City Code of Ordinance 50.04 (A)(6) All alleys and right-of-ways used for sanitation, maintenance and utilities service shall be clear of any obstruction. Property owners are required to inspect the alley behind their property and immediately trim or remove all trees and shrubs that are encroaching into the public right-of-way. If trees or shrubs are found to be obstructing access they will be trimmed or removed by the City’s contractor or City staff at the owner’s expense. The total cost of removal services and an administrative fee will be charged to the property owner.
Additionally, as a reminder, access to alleyways could be limited at times due to this construction. Curbside sanitation collections are taking place now through the duration of this project. A temporary on-street parking restriction is also in effect in the Parkside neighborhood. On-street parking is prohibited Mondays and Thursdays from 8 AM to noon to allow trucks access to curbside collection carts.
