Program Description

  Non-Roadway Right of Way Maintenance

Elements supported under this program provide positive value to the quality of life for residents and visitors through green infrastructure maintenance activities located in the County right-of-way.

Through scheduled maintenance and emergency response to hazardous conditions, efforts to ensure the safety of all pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists traveling within the County are priority non-roadway maintenance. Some examples of non-roadway maintenance include hazardous tree removal, tree pruning, traffic barrier repair, shoulder mowing, and foliage removal to provide adequate road clearance and sign, signal, and streetlight visibility. Many tree maintenance activities also contribute to the County's efforts to mitigate damage to public and private property due to severe weather events and unanticipated environmental risks.

In addition to the elements of safety, this program also offers positive environmental impacts and contributes to aesthetically mindful maintenance that help the County create and maintain a healthy and thriving environment. Some examples of environmentally conscious activities include street tree preservation and planting, tree stump removal for the establishment of new planting sites, vacuum leaf collections through the Annual Leaf Collection Program within the established leafing districts, street sweeping which contributes to the County's Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) environmental permit, maintenance of a dedicated trail and bike network, beauty spot improvements, and shoulder litter removal.
