DPD has updated the Construction Stormwater Control Plan and Post Construction Soil Management Plan, with a new tree and vegetation protection detail. The detail now includes the standard requirements to protect code-defined exceptional trees or any tree requiring protection during construction. It includes directions on who to contact when you may need to make field-identified modifications to the required tree protection zone.
Overgrown vegetation can make sidewalk travel difficult and cause traffic hazards. Many property owners and occupants don’t know that they are responsible for maintaining vegetation on the public right-of-way next to their property— including the sidewalk and planting strip, alleys, walkways, and roadways. We rely on property owners and occupants to comply with code requirements for vegetation maintenance and will notify them of violations when we receive a complaint.
