Sections of maintained lawn that need to be removed for construction will be restored with new seed at the end of the project. The contractor is responsible for watering the new seed for 30-calendar days following installation, after which it is the homeowner’s responsibility. Please do not mow new seed with the rest of your lawn as this will kill it. All residents will receive mailings notifying them of the end dates of the contractor’s seed maintenance period.

Residents will have access to their driveways for the majority of the construction project. However, if and when concrete curb and gutter is being replaced in front of your driveway, the City requires a 5-day minimum curing time with no disturbance to the concrete. There also may be short periods during the day where a resident may not have access to his/her driveway due to roadway construction. Property owners will be provided as much advance notification as possible when access to driveways will be restricted.
The contractor will install temporary mailboxes as determined by the Post Office and residents will be notified of their location. The existing mailbox will be salvaged until after construction and reinstalled in a similar location.
Trash pickup in the neighborhood will take place on the same day it currently occurs.

The contractor is responsible for protecting, or replacing to their original condition if damaged, most items such as small retaining walls, landscape features or irrigation systems found in the homeowner’s yard. For underground items such as invisible pet fences and irrigation lines, all homeowners are asked to make an effort to mark them so that the contractor can work around them and protect them as much as possible from damage. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to relocate any plantings that will be disturbed by construction; the contractor will not replace plantings with final restoration of the project.
The City completed tree pruning work over the winter months, and also removed trees anticipated to be impacted by construction at that time. Any additional tree removal needs associated with construction activities will be communicated to property owners on a case-by-case basis.
