[ARCHIVED] It's Time to Deal with Unsightly Weeds

Spring and summer means the grass and weeds will be growing and with all the moisture we recently received, they are going to be growing faster than ever!

The Town would like to remind Parker residents about our Municipal Ordinance dealing with weeds and tall grass. Any non-native grass or weeds over 12-inches tall must be cut. We request that noxious weeds be pulled or sprayed as mowing them won’t remove the threat of spreading.

We also ask that all residents take a moment and look over their front, side and back yards to ensure they are free from tall grass and weeds. If your property does have tall grass and weeds, please take care of them as quickly as possible and continue to maintain your property throughout the year. Any violation of this ordinance could result in a fine up to $499 per day that the violation exists.

Undeveloped property is permitted to grow native and other acceptable vegetation to their naturally occurring heights. This practice is essential for accepted erosion-control practices, wildlife habitat and natural suppression of weeds. Please contact Neighborhood Services regarding undeveloped fields.

Thank you in advance for inspecting your property to ensure that you are not in violation of this Ordinance. For questions or more information, please visit www.parkeronline.org or call Neighborhood Services at 303.841.2332. Thank you for helping to make the Town a better place to live!
