To All Joshua Property Owners and Residents,
The Spring growing season will soon be upon us and properties will begin renewed vegetation growth. We are asking all property owners and occupants to take steps to maintain vegetation, including grass and weeds, which is not normally cultivated, at 12 inches or less in height.
We are announcing this in advance of the start of the growing season, as a proactive request that you monitor your properties and maintain vegetation within the requirements established by City of Joshua Ordinance. It is our wish to gain compliance without punitive steps being taken.
Sections of the City Ordinance, which details the requirements for mitigating Overgrown Vegetation and Weeds are shown here for your information.
Sec. 6.02.007 Overgrown vegetation and weeds prohibited
Except as provided in subsection (d) it is an offense for any person owning, leasing, claiming, occupying, or having supervision or control of any real property within the city, to suffer, permit, or allow uncultivated grass, weeds, or brush, to grow to a height greater than 12 inches on average upon such premises, including along the sidewalk or street adjacent to the premises between the property line and the curb or, if there is no curb, between the property line and the driving surface.
(d) For tracts of land in excess of two acres, or that are used for agricultural purposes or the active production of livestock, it shall be required only that grass, weeds and vegetation, not regularly cultivated, be mowed to a height of no greater than 12 inches within a minimum of 200 feet of all adjacent property lines and public or private streets. This minimum may be revised on a case-by-case basis when deemed necessary by the fire marshal to insure adequate fire safety of adjacent property containing structures or equipment.
The entirety of the City Ordinance can be found on the City of Joshua Website at http://www.cityofjoshuatx.us. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the City of Joshua a clean and safe environment for everyone.
