-- asked Bottorff and City Planner Katrina Marshall to make proposals for changes to city rules concerning maintenance of developed and undeveloped property. In a 45-minute discussion, the board considered possible new regulations that could require property owners to have perimeter buffers clear of unmaintained growth of grass and weeds. The board also discussed ways to use city rules to require property owners to clear growth from front yard/street-side ditches. The discussion took place based on a citizen complaint about the maintenance of undeveloped property in her neighborhood that is deemed to be in a “natural” state and could violate current regulations. The board plans to revisit the matter at a future meeting.
