No Mow May
The owner of a property, or tenants with their Landlord's permission, may voluntarily register for No Mow May online any time from April 18, 2023 at 8:00 AM until May 31, 2023 at 4:00 PM. Registration is not mandatory. The ordinance has been amended such that the City will not be enforcing grass/lawn/weed ordinances for the entire month of May each year.
We encourage you to continue to register, though, as we would like to keep a count of the properties participating each year. This count can potentially help the City get additional grant funding to help facilitate the long-term conversion of turf grass lawns to sustainable pollinator yards.
All No Mow May participants agree that their the lawn will be mowed to less than a height of approximately 9 inches, and all grass clippings will be mulched, composted, or removed from the yard on or before June 5, 2023.
Additional hours will be authorized at the yard waste drop off site at the City garage located at 100 Sixth Ave. from May 29 - June 3 to allow residents more time to dispose of residential lawn clippings. Please check this website for more information.
Signs are available on first-come first-served basis and are not required. They can be picked up at the Community Development Department at 1515 Strongs Ave. during regular business hours Monday - Friday 7:30 am - 4:00 pm. After-hours pickup will be available outside the office weekdays 6:30 - 7:30 am and 4:00 - 5:30 pm.n for "No Mow May" is OPE
