The Property Maintenance Division’s responsibility is to insure the health, safety, and welfare of the public through the enforcement of property maintenance code regulations and zoning ordinances. The property maintenance regulations for the City of West Carrollton are contained in the City’s Property Maintenance Code – which governs the maintenance of existing residential and nonresidential buildings and all property. The Code Enforcement Officer is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the code.
Trim Trees and Shrubs on Your Property
West Carrollton City Council strives to protect property values and enhance the image and safety of all of our neighborhoods. Low hanging tree branches and/or overgrown shrubs not only cause safety concerns, but can also decrease curb appeal. We ask all property owners to review the following code guidelines:
- Tree/shrub branches must be more than 14 feet vertically from the road/alley.
- Tree/shrub branches must be more than 8 feet vertically from the public sidewalk.
- Tree/shrub branches must be more than 12 inches horizontally from the road/alley or sidewalk.
The City asks that property owners trim trees/shrubs on their property not meeting these guidelines by April 15th, 2023 to avoid an invoice from the city to complete this work for you. Please note that property owners are responsible for trimming trees/shrubs in the front yard between the curb and sidewalk as well.
Your cooperation in addressing this issue is appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact Planning & Community Development at (937) 859-5783, Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00am – 4:30pm or [email protected].
