The Code Compliance Division is responsible for the enforcement of our municipal ordinances that protect the basic character of residential and business areas through the investigation of items such as junk vehicles, weeds and rubbish complaints, and zoning violations. We preserve the quality of Broomfield neighborhoods by ensuring compliance with the regulations of the Municipal Code designed to maintain a quality appearance for the community.
Now that we are into the last weeks of summer, it is a good time to check the vegetation on your property for encroachments! After months of growth, are your trees and shrubs creating a safety concern? Broomfield Municipal Code prohibits any vegetation from obstructing or impeding pedestrian travel on public sidewalks or motor vehicle traffic on public streets. Tree branches cannot block visibility of traffic control and street signs either.
Please take a look around your property and trim any vegetation back to the edge of the sidewalk or ensure a minimum clearance of 36 inches.
You may report an encroachment concern at the link above.
