Just wanted to share a friendly reminder You are responsible for keeping clear walking/parking areas!

Vegetation in our yards and our trees along the streets are healthy and actively producing. We realize it may be hard to maintain a tidy yard when it rained every weekend this spring - the days most of us do yard work.

However, we do have laws and ask the Sheriff to enforce them. You may receive a notice stating you are in violation. The City and Gallatin County Sheriff understand there are few days we can get all these chores done, but do ask that you please remember these rules and take action to be in compliance:

Tree and bush branches & limbs are to be kept clear over sidewalks and parking areas along the boulevards a minimum of 7-feet clearance (Ord. #5-7-3A).

Over the main driving area of all streets, tree branches and limbs are to be kept clear a minimum of 14-feet (Ord. #5-7-3-B).

Weeds and vegetation are also to be trimmed regularly in order to not be taller than 6-inches, and to remain noxious weed-free (Ord. #5-5).

This keeps our community safer by reducing fire hazards, helps keeps our neighbors' cars traveling along the roads without being scratched, and even for road projects this keeps the heavy equipment trucks from breaking branches off your trees when they are dumping gravel, grading, or chip sealing.

 

The "Three Forks Ponds" park

Has a new addition!

Thanks to the generous donation from Water Lemons, LLC we will have a fishing dock! This is intended to provide child-friendly fishing access by allowing users a way in to the ponds farther from the shore (and the reeds we all get snagged in). Fish hiding “foliage” will be installed on the pond bottom as well, similar to real aquatic plants but made of recycled siding. Construction is done and it looks great!

Please report any vandalism or if you have any other questions please contact us at 285-3431.
